Solution Structure and Molecular Determinants of Hemoglobin Binding of the First NEAT Domain of IsdB in Staphylococcus aureus


The human pathogen Staphylococcus aureus acquires heme iron from hemoglobin (Hb) via the action of a series of iron-regulated surface determinant (Isd) proteins. The cell wall anchored IsdB protein is recognized as the predominant Hb receptor, and is comprised of two NEAr transporter (NEAT) domains that act in concert to bind, extract, and transfer heme… (More)
