Redox-dependent complex formation by an ATP-dependent activator of the corrinoid/iron-sulfur protein.

Movement, cell division, protein biosynthesis, electron transfer against an electrochemical gradient, and many more processes depend on energy conversions coupled to the hydrolysis of ATP. The reduction of metal sites with low reduction potentials (E(0') < -500 mV) is possible by connecting an energetical uphill electron transfer with the hydrolysis of ATP… CONTINUE READING
