The structure of the bacterial ferredoxin from Peptococcus aerogenes (54 amino acids) has been determined at 2.8 A resolution. The molecule is a prolate ellipsoid with approximate dimension of 22 x 27 A. The iron and sulfur atoms are in two complexes 12 A apart with 4 iron, 4 inorganic sulfur, and 4 cysteine sulfur atoms in each. Cys 8, 11, 14, and 45 are coordinated to iron atoms in one complex and Cys 18, 35, 38, and 41 are coordinated to iron in the other. The two tyrosine groups present in… CONTINUE READING
