Structure, function, and formation of biological iron-sulfur clusters


Structure, function, and formation of biological iron-sulfur clusters



Annual Review of Biochemistry 74: 247-281

Iron-sulfur clusters are ubiquitous and evolutionary ancient prosthetic groups that are required to sustain fundamental life processes. Owing to their remarkable structural plasticity and versatile chemical/electronic features clusters participate in electron transfer, substrate binding/activation, iron/sulfur storage, regulation of gene expression, and enzyme activity. Formation of intracellular clusters does not occur spontaneously but requires a complex biosynthetic machinery.
