The extracellular heme-binding protein HbpS from the soil bacterium Streptomyces reticuli is an aquo-cobalamin binder.


The extracellular protein HbpS from Streptomyces reticuli interacts with iron ions and heme. It also acts in concert with the two-component sensing system SenS-SenR in response to oxidative stress. Sequence comparisons suggested that the protein may bind a cobalamin. UV-visible spectroscopy confirmed binding (Kd = 34 μm) to aquo-cobalamin (H2OCbl(+)) but… (More)
