Iron-sulfur cluster proteins carry out multiple functions, including as regulators of gene transcription/translation in response to environmental stimuli. In all known cases, the cluster acts as the sensory module, where the inherent reactivity/fragility of iron-sulfur clusters with small/redox active molecules is exploited to effect conformational changes that modulate binding to nucleic regulatory sequences. This promotes an often substantial re-programming of the cellular proteome that enables the organism or cell to adapt to, or counteract, its changing circumstances. Here, I will discuss recent progress in the structural and mechanistic characterization of iron-sulfur cluster regulators, focussing on FNR, NsrR, RirA and WhiB-like proteins that are involved in sensing molecular oxygen, iron, and/or nitric oxide in bacteria. In recent years, we have developed the use of mass spectrometry under conditions where iron-sulfur proteins remain folded and the cluster bound; aspects of this work will ...
Essential component of the cytosolic iron-sulfur (Fe/S) protein assembly machinery. Required for the maturation of extramitochondrial Fe/S proteins.
In 2008, NIH investigators collaborated to find a mutation in the human gene, ISCU, which is the official human gene name for a gene involved in assembly of iron sulfur clusters, and is abbreviated from Iron Sulfur Cluster assembly protein, U, which was identified as the cause of a rare myopathy that affected about 25 patients in Sweden. This protocol is intended to allow for the collection and analysis of clinical specimens and medical information from several research subjects who previously participated in studies that led to identification of the disease gene ...
Scaffold protein for the de novo synthesis of iron-sulfur (Fe-S) clusters within mitochondria, which is required for maturation of both mitochondrial and cytoplasmic [2Fe-2S] and [4Fe-4S] proteins. First, a [2Fe-2S] cluster is transiently assembled on the scaffold protein ISCU. In a second step, the cluster is released from ISCU, transferred to a glutaredoxin GLRX5, followed by the formation of mitochondrial [2Fe-2S] proteins, the synthesis of [4Fe-4S] clusters and their target-specific insertion into the recipient apoproteins. Cluster assembly on ISCU depends on the function of the cysteine desulfurase complex NFS1-LYRM4/ISD11, which serves as the sulfur donor for cluster synthesis, the iron-binding protein frataxin as the putative iron donor, and the electron transfer chain comprised of ferredoxin reductase and ferredoxin, which receive their electrons from NADH (By similarity).
Small inorganic assemblies of alternating ferrous/ferric iron and sulphide ions, so-called iron-sulphur (Fe-S) clusters, are probably nature‟s most ancient prosthetic groups. These multipurpose reactive centres are biosynthesised by dedicated Fe-S cluster assembly proteins which are conserved in the mitochondria of all eukaryotes. One of the early actors in Fe-S cluster biosynthesis is a cysteine desulphurase, Nfs1, which catalyses the release of elemental sulphur from cysteine and plays a key role in its transfer to a molecular scaffold. Recent work has discovered that these reactions require the involvement of a small adaptor protein, Isd11. Isd11 belongs to the LYR family of proteins and helps stabilise Nfs1 upon binding. In this Thesis, heterologous production of soluble yeast Nfs1 on its own as well as in complex with yeast Isd11 in E. coli is presented. In the absence of Nfs1, Isd11 aggregated in the form of inclusion bodies from which the in vitro recovery of soluble protein could not ...
Proteins containing iron-sulfur clusters play essential roles in electron-transfer, catalysis and other biochemical processes [1, 2]. In eubacteria and in many eukaryotes, general iron-sulfur cluster biosynthesis is mediated by the multi-component ISC assembly system. Extensive biochemical and genetic studies [3-9] have shown that this process occurs through the assembly of a cluster on the scaffold protein IscU (Isu in yeast) followed by its transfer to a recipient apo-protein. The efficiency of the second step is greatly increased in the presence of HscA and HscB (Ssq1 and Jac1, respectively, in yeast), but the precise role of this chaperone system is not well understood [9-12].. HscB is a 20 kDa J-type co-chaperone protein that regulates the ATP hydrolysis activity of HscA and targets IscU to its substrate-binding domain. The crystal structures of HscB from Escherichia coli [13], Homo sapiens [14], and Vibrio cholerae [Osipiuk, Gu, Papazisi, Anderson, and Joachimiak unpublished data, PDB ID: ...
We have identified a novel component of the mitochondrial ISC assembly system, Iba57p (previously termed Caf17p), in a genome-wide screen for S. cerevisiae mutants that carry a coupled lysine and glutamate auxotrophy, which is indicative of defects of aconitase and homoaconitase maturation. Iba57p was demonstrated to be crucial for de novo Fe/S cluster incorporation into these mitochondrial aconitase-type Fe/S proteins. In addition, Iba57p is required for the in vivo enzymatic functions of the mitochondrial radical-SAM Fe/S proteins biotin synthase and lipoic acid synthase. Iba57p interacts with Isa1p and Isa2p, a finding consistent with the virtually identical phenotypes of isa1Δ, isa2Δ and iba57Δ cells (29, 31, 48). No defects in the maturation of other Fe/S proteins were detected in cells depleted for Iba57p or Isa1p/Isa2p (Mühlenhoff et al., unpublished). In addition, the deregulated iron homeostasis that is typical of cells with general defects in the mitochondrial ISC assembly and ...

Isf (iron-sulfur flavoprotein) from Methanosarcina thermophila has been produced in Escherichia coli as a dimer containing two 4Fe-4S clusters and two FMN (flavin mononucleotide) cofactors. The deduced sequence of Isf contains six cysteines (Cys 16, Cys 47, Cys 50, Cys 53, Cys 59, and Cys 180), four of which (Cys 47, Cys 50, Cys 53, and Cys 59) comprise a motif with high identity to a motif (CX2CX2CX4-7C) present in all homologous Isf sequences available in the databases. The spacing of the motif is highly compact and atypical of motifs coordinating known 4Fe-4S clusters; therefore, all six cysteines in Isf from M. thermophila were altered to either alanine or serine to obtain corroborating biochemical evidence that the motif coordinates the 4Fe-4S cluster and to further characterize properties of the cluster dependent on ligation. All except the C16S variant were produced in inclusion bodies and were void of iron-sulfur clusters and FMN. Reconstitution of the iron-sulfur cluster and FMN was ...

Iron sulfur (Fe-S) clusters are cofactors in hundreds of proteins involved in multiple cellular processes, including mitochondrial respiration, the maintenance of genome stability, ribosome biogenesis and translation. Fe-S cluster biogenesis is performed by multiple enzymes that are highly conserved throughout evolution, and mutations in numerous biogenesis factors are now recognized to cause a wide range of previously uncategorized rare human diseases. Recently, a complex formed of components of the cytoplasmic Fe-S cluster assembly (CIA) machinery, consisting of CIAO1, FAM96B and MMS19, was found to deliver Fe-S clusters to a subset of proteins involved in DNA metabolism, but it was unclear how this complex acquired its fully synthesized Fe-S clusters, since Fe-S clusters have been alleged to be assembled de novo solely in the mitochondrial matrix ...

Iron-sulphur (FeS) clusters are important cofactors for numerous proteins involved in electron transfer, in redox and non-redox catalysis, in gene regulation, and as sensors of oxygen and iron. These functions depend on the various FeS cluster prosthetic groups, the most common being [2Fe-2S] and [4Fe-4S] [(PUBMED:16221578)]. FeS cluster assembly is a complex process involving the mobilisation of Fe and S atoms from storage sources, their assembly into [Fe-S] form, their transport to specific cellular locations, and their transfer to recipient apoproteins. So far, three FeS assembly machineries have been identified, which are capable of synthesising all types of [Fe-S] clusters: ISC (iron-sulphur cluster), SUF (sulphur assimilation), and NIF (nitrogen fixation) systems.. In the NIF system, NifS and NifU are required for the formation of metalloclusters of nitrogenase in Azotobacter vinelandii, and other organisms, as well as in the maturation of other FeS proteins. Nitrogenase catalyses the ...
Ferrodoxins are the group of non-hame iron sulphur protein which are responsible for electron transfer in plants and animals (bacteria). They serve the same function that cytochromes perform in animals. Ferrodoxins are involved in the realese of energy by oxidising glucose with molecular O2 in mitochondria inside the living cell. they have the moleculr weight 6000-12000amu which may contain 1 to 4 or 8 Fe-atoms. The Fe atoms are surround by 4 sulphur atoms and they may be represented as Fe(S-system)4. Biological role of Ferrodoxins ...
Oxidative stress mediated by reactive oxygen species (ROS) is linked to degenerative conditions in humans and damage to an array of cellular components. However, it is unclear which molecular target(s) may be the primary "Achilles heel" of organisms, accounting for the inhibitory action of ROS. Rli1p (ABCE1) is an essential and highly conserved protein of eukaryotes and archaea that requires notoriously ROS-labile cofactors (Fe-S clusters) for its functions in protein synthesis. In this study, we tested the hypothesis that ROS toxicity is caused by Rli1p dysfunction. In addition to being essential, Rli1p activity (in nuclear ribosomal-subunit export) was shown to be impaired by mild oxidative stress in yeast. Furthermore, prooxidant resistance was decreased by RLI1 repression and increased by RLI1 overexpression. This Rlip1 dependency was abolished during anaerobicity and accentuated in cells expressing a FeS cluster-defective Rli1p construct. The proteins FeS clusters appeared ROS labile ...

The Paracoccus denitrificans transcription factor FnrP has been characterized using artificial FNR-dependent promoter-lacZ fusion plasmids in Escherichia coli. FnrP can activate both class I and class II FNR-dependent promoters in response to anoxia but shows a marked preference for the class II promoter, where the FNR binding site is centered at -41.5 with respect to the transcription start site. FnrP was found to be inactive in an iscS mutant in vivo, demonstrating a requirement for cysteine desulfurase activity to assemble an iron-sulfur cluster in FnrP. Accordingly, an iron-sulfur cluster could be reconstituted into the purified protein in vitro using cysteine desulfurase, ferrous ions, and cysteine. Thus, FnrP is a true orthologue of FNR from E. coli and switches on target genes in response to anoxia. Inactivation of FnrP by oxygen very likely involves the oxidative disassembly of an iron-sulfur cluster. Possible ligands for the iron-sulfur cluster were identified by substituting each of ...

It takes about 200mg of sulfur protein to potentiate 1 tablespoon of flaxseed oil (and 600mg to potentiate the standard amount of 3T flaxseed oil). The Budwig protocol uses 100 grams of quark to potentiate 3T of flaxseed oil. If using cottage cheese, you would need about 3/4 C for 3T of flaxseed oil. If using whey protein concentrate (Defense Nutrition), you would need about 13 grams. If using Goatein, you would need about 20 grams. Adding more sulfur protein than you need will not hurt and is always good since the extra amount of protein will insure that all the flaxseed oil is potentiated ...
Birds use the magnetic field of the Earth to navigate during their annual migratory travel. The possible mechanism to explain the biophysics of this compass sense involves electron transfers within the photoreceptive protein cryptochrome. A study (Qin et al., 2016) claimed that the sensitivity to changes in the magnetic field is enhanced by a coupling to an iron rich polymer complex which couples to multiple cryptochromes. For the iron sulphur clusters to participate in the compass sense, they either need to donate an electron to a specific tryptophane in the cryptochome or accept an electron from the flavin adenine dinucleotide (FAD) co-factor in the cryptochrome. To validate the claim, it is needed to independently reconstruct this complex and describe its interaction with Drosophila melanogaster cryptochromes. The polymer complex consists of iron sulphur containing assembly ISCA1 protein monomers with internally bound iron sulphur clusters and simultaneously binds ten cryptochromes, shown in ...

Biosynthesis of the Catalytic H-Cluster of [FeFe] Hydrogenase. Abstract. [FeFe] hydrogenase enzymes rapidly evolve H2 at a 6-Fe catalytic site termed the H-cluster, which consists of a traditional [4Fe-4S] cluster linked via a cysteine bridge to a dinuclear Fe subcluster [2Fe]H that possesses unusual biological ligands: two terminal CN- ligands, two terminal CO ligands, and azadithiolate and CO bridges, all of which are thought to be synthesized and installed by a set of Fe-S proteins denoted HydE, HydF, and HydG. With the James Swartz laboratory (Stanford University) we can generate [FeFe] hydrogenase in high yield using cell free synthesis methods, allowing for specific isotope labelling of its components as needed for definitive spectroscopic studies (1).. The radical S-adenosylmethionine (SAM) enzyme HydG lyses free L-tyrosine to produce CO and CN- for the assembly of the H-cluster. We use electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) spectroscopy to detect and characterize HydG reaction ...
Nitric oxide (NO) is a radical capable of inhibiting bacterial growth. Bacteria in turn have multiple mechanisms of resisting the toxic effects of NO, usually encoded by genes under the control of NO-responsive transcription factors. However, our knowledge of the protein targets of NO is limited, as is the function of many NO-regulated genes. We studied two genes in V. cholerae, hmpA and nnrS, which encode a flavohemoglobin and a protein of unknown function, respectively, both predicted to be under control of the NO-responsive transcription factor NorR. We confirmed that both promoters were regulated by NorR and found that all three genes were important for growth in the presence of NO stress. We then performed a metabolomic study on multiple strains of V. cholerae, finding new potential metabolic targets of NO. In particular we found that substrates of iron-sulfur cluster-containing proteins accumulated in strains lacking nnrS, and that aconitase activity was decreased in cell-free extracts of nnrS
BACKGROUND: Mitochondria play essential biological functions including the synthesis and trafficking of porphyrins and iron/sulfur clusters (ISC), processes that in mammals involve the mitochondrial ATP-Binding Cassette (ABC) transporters ABCB6 and ABCB7, respectively. The mitochondrion of pathogenic protozoan parasites such as Leishmania is a promising goal for new therapeutic approaches. Leishmania infects human macrophages producing the neglected tropical disease known as leishmaniasis. Like most trypanosomatid parasites, Leishmania is auxotrophous for heme and must acquire porphyrins from the host. METHODS: LmABCB3, a new Leishmania major protein with significant sequence similarity to human ABCB6/ABCB7, was identified and characterized using bioinformatic tools. Fluorescent microscopy was used to determine its cellular localization, and its level of expression was modulated by molecular genetic techniques. Intracellular in vitro assays were used to demonstrate its role in amastigotes ...

Fe-S clusters are iron-containing cofactors utilized by numerous proteins within several biological pathways essential to life. In eukaryotes, the primary pathway for Fe-S cluster production is the iron-sulfur cluster (ISC) pathway. The eukaryotic ISC pathway, localized primarily within the mitochondria, has been best characterized within Saccharomyces cerevisiae. In yeast, de novo Fe-S cluster formation is accomplished through coordinated assembly of the substrates iron and sulfur on the primary scaffold assembly protein
Ferredoxins [1] are a group of iron-sulfur proteins which mediate electron transfer in a wide variety of metabolic reactions. Ferredoxins can be divided into several subgroups depending upon the physiological nature of the iron-sulfur cluster(s). One of these subgroups are the 4Fe-4S ferredoxins, which are found in bacteria and which are thus often referred as bacterial-type ferredoxins. The structure of these proteins [2] consists of the duplication of a domain of twenty six amino acid residues; each of these domains contains four cysteine residues that bind to a 4Fe-4S center. Several structures of the 4Fe-4S ferredoxin domain have been determined (see for example ,PDB:1FDN,) [3]. The clusters consist of two interleaved 4Fe- and 4S-tetrahedra forming a cubane-like structure, in such a way that the four iron occupy the eight corners of a distorted cube. Each 4Fe-4S is attached to the polypeptide chain by four covalent Fe-S bonds involving cysteine residues. A number of proteins have been ...
The oxygen sensing ability of the transcription factor FNR depends on the presence of a [4Fe-4S]2+ cluster. In the presence of O2, conversion of the [4Fe-4S]2+ cluster to a [2Fe-2S]2+ cluster inactivates FNR, but the fate of the [2Fe-2S]2+ cluster in cells grown under aerobic conditions is unknown. The present study shows that the predominant form of FNR in aerobic cells is apo-FNR (cluster-less FNR) indicating that the [2Fe-2S]2+ cluster, like the [4Fe-4S]2+ cluster, is not stable under these conditions. By quantifying the amount of [2Fe-2S]2+ cluster in 2Fe-FNR in vitro in the presence of various reductants and oxidants (GSH, DTT, cysteine, O2, hydrogen peroxide, and superoxide), we found that superoxide, a byproduct of aerobic metabolism, significantly destabilized the [2Fe-2S]2+ cluster. Mössbauer spectroscopy was used to monitor the effects of superoxide on 2Fe-FNR in vivo; under cellular conditions that favored superoxide production, we observed the disappearance of the signal ...

Genome mapping of Mtb revealed that the genome contains genes encoding for a high number of cytochrome P450 enzymes (CYPs or P450s) that are involved in very specific and physiologically relevant pathways for the bacteria. Therefore, cytochrome P450 enzymes are investigated as targets for novel therapeutic agents. Sandra Ortega Ugalde and her AIMMS colleagues identified the reaction catalyzed by one of these CYPs, CYP130A1, shedding light into its physiological role. Furthermore, catalytic activity of mycobacterial CYPs is dependent on electron transfer from a NAD (P)H-ferredoxin-reductase and a ferredoxin. Ortega and her colleagues have improved the basic understanding of the selectivity, biochemical properties, and function of the iron-sulfur cluster-containing ferredoxin proteins in Mtb essential for the reconstitution of the cognate CYP catalytic system to aid in the development of new antibiotics. Finally, they are also conducting collaborative studies to synthetize specific and potent ...

Microbes are routinely engineered to synthesise chemicals from renewable materials. Improvements in microbial engineering are accelerating the global transition to a sustainable bio-based economy, as more chemicals are made in a manner similar to beer brewing, rather than being refined from oil. At the heart of microbial synthesis are enzymes that catalyse the reactions that produce the chemicals. Harnessing enzymes can be straightforward: genes encoding enzymes that perform the needed chemistry are installed into a microbial species, which then produces the chemical.. However, while cells readily manufacture enzymes from other species, often the enzymes cannot perform the needed chemistry. This prevents microbial engineers from using such enzymes, and as a result, many chemicals still cannot be made by microbes on a useful scale. This problem is severe for enzymes known as iron-sulfur (FeS) enzymes. These enzymes must obtain iron (in the form of FeS clusters) and electrons from their host cell, ...
