Structure and function of the FeoB G-domain from Methanococcus jannaschii.

Abstract

FeoB in bacteria and archaea is involved in the uptake of ferrous iron (Fe(2+)), an important cofactor in biological electron transfer and catalysis. Unlike any other known prokaryotic membrane protein, FeoB contains a GTP-binding domain at its N-terminus. We determined high-resolution X-ray structures of the FeoB G-domain from Methanococcus jannaschii with… (More)
