The Fox1 ferroxidase of Chlamydomonas reinhardtii: a new multicopper oxidase structural paradigm

Abstract

Multicopper oxidases (MCO) contain at least four copper atoms arrayed in three distinct ligand fields supported by two canonical structural features: (1) multiples of the cupredoxin fold and (2) four unique sequence elements that include the ten histidine and one cysteine ligands to the four copper atoms. Ferroxidases are a subfamily of MCO proteins that… (More)
