Recent developments in the field of iron-sulfur proteins

FASEB J. 1990 May;4(8):2483-91. doi: 10.1096/fasebj.4.8.2185975.


This review considers recent information, in the following order, on complex proteins containing Fe-S clusters together with other prosthetic groups, on hydrogenases, unexpected functions of Fe-S clusters, novel cluster types, protein structures furnishing the cluster ligands, evolutionary aspects, and spectroscopic methods and theoretical approaches used or developed in the study of Fe-S proteins.
