The plant-type ferredoxins (Fds) are the [2Fe–2S] proteins that function primarily in photosynthesis; they transfer electrons from photoreduced Photosystem I to ferredoxin NADP+ reductase in which NADPH is produced for CO2 assimilation. In addition, Fds partition electrons to various ferredoxin-dependent enzymes not only for assimilations of inorganic nitrogen and sulfur and N2 fixation but also for regulation of CO2 assimilation cycle. Although Fds are small iron–sulfur proteins with molecular… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

The ferredoxin/thioredoxin system of oxygenic photosynthesis.
TLDR
The plant is highlighted as a model system to uncover principles of redox biology that apply to other organisms after recent evidence that extends the Fdx/Trx system to amyloplasts-heterotrophic plastids functional in the biosynthesis of starch and other cell components.
Pattern of Expression and Substrate Specificity of Chloroplast Ferredoxins from Chlamydomonas reinhardtii*
TLDR
The results suggest that each ferredoxin isoform has substrate specificity and that the presence of multiple ferredoxins allows for the allocation of reducing power to specific metabolic pathways in the chloroplast under various growth conditions.
Structural and functional characterization of the ga-substituted ferredoxin from Synechocystis sp. PCC6803, a mimic of the native protein.
TLDR
The results provide a structural justification for the use of the gallium-substituted analogue in interaction studies and indicate that the general structural fold found for the native, iron-containing ferredoxin is conserved in GaFd.
Evolution of Chlamydomonas reinhardtii ferredoxins and their interactions with [FeFe]-hydrogenases
TLDR
The most recent findings with regard to ferredoxin-HYDA interactions and the evolution of the various Chlamydomonas reinhardtii ferred toxin isoforms are discussed and an outlook on new PETF-based biotechnological approaches for improved H2 production efficiencies is provided.
Are plastocyanin and ferredoxin specific electron carriers or generic redox capacitors? Classical and murburn perspectives on two photosynthetic proteins
TLDR
Structural evidence, interactive dynamics with redox partners and physiological distribution/role of PC/Fd support the murburn perspective that these proteins serve as generic redox-capacitors in chloroplasts.
A new structural insight into differential interaction of cyanobacterial and plant ferredoxins with nitrite reductase as revealed by NMR and X-ray crystallographic studies.
TLDR
Three acidic regions of Fd are determined to be major sites for the interaction with NiR, indicating that the complex is stabilized through electrostatic interaction, highlighting that intermolecular force other than electrostatic attraction is also crucial for the molecular interaction between Fd and partner enzyme.
FdC1 and Leaf-Type Ferredoxins Channel Electrons From Photosystem I to Different Downstream Electron Acceptors
TLDR
It is shown that FdC1 could interact with some, but not all, electron acceptors of leaf-type Fds, including the ferredoxin-thioredoxin reductase (FTR), sulfite reductasing enzyme (SiR), and nitrite reductases (NiR), which may allow it to receive electrons from FNR in non-photosynthetic plastids.
The Interaction of Ferredoxin with Ferredoxin-Dependent Enzymes
TLDR
This chapter focuses on the interactions between ferredoxin and six enzymes that utilize reduced ferred toxin as an electron donor (NADP + reductase, nitrate reduct enzyme, nitrite reductases, glutamate synthase, sulfite reductasing, and thioredoxin reductased).

A Post Genomic Characterization of Arabidopsis Ferredoxins1
TLDR
Rec recombinantly expressed and purified the four conventional [2Fe-2S] Fd proteins encoded in the Arabidopsis genome and analyzed their physical and functional properties, demonstrating how varied and essential soluble electron transfer functions in higher plants are fulfilled through a diversity of Fdprotein.
Structure of the electron transfer complex between ferredoxin and ferredoxin-NADP+ reductase
TLDR
The first crystal structure of the complex between maize leaf Fd and Fd-NADP+ oxidoreductase (FNR) is reported, suggesting that this type of molecular communication not only determines the optimal orientation of the two proteins for electron transfer, but also contributes to the modulation of the enzymatic properties of FNR.
Differential interaction of maize root ferredoxin:NADP(+) oxidoreductase with photosynthetic and non-photosynthetic ferredoxin isoproteins.
TLDR
It is proposed that the stronger interaction of R-F NR with Fd III is crucial for an efficient electron flux of NADPH-FNR-Fd cascade, thus supporting Fd-dependent metabolism in non-photosynthetic organs.
