Structure and mechanism of iron translocation by a Dps protein from Microbacterium arborescens.

Abstract

Dps (DNA protection during starvation) enzymes are a major class of dodecameric proteins that bacteria use to detoxify their cytosol through the uptake of reactive iron species. In the stationary growth phase of bacteria, Dps enzymes are primarily used to protect DNA by biocrystallization. To characterize the wild type Dps protein from Microbacterium… (More)
