The query results showed that 296 sequences hit to "Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF) like region, conserved site," followed by 124 and 102 unigenes that match the genes encoding "2Fe-2S ferredoxin, iron-sulfur binding site," and "thiolase," respectively (Table 2).
The reduced ferredoxin is reoxidized by the hydrogenase to form hydrogen.
Russell and Martin offer yet another piece of circumstantial evidence that life may have emerged from iron sulfide-catalyzed chemistry: Many of the large proteins that drive basic biochemical reactions today--such as ferredoxin, a protein that mediates metabolic reactions--rely on smaller iron sulfur cofactors.
554] in whole cells of Chlamydomonas reinhardi, and inhibits either ferredoxin or ferredoxin-NADP oxidoreductase (Hiyama et al.
Role for ferredoxins in the origin of life and biological evolution.
The lecture proceeds with a discussion of the various structures of the iron and copper proteins involved (cytochromes, ferredoxins and plastocyanins) and shows that we currently know rather less about the manganese site implicated in the water-splitting step.
The expression of a plant-type ferredoxin redox system provides molecular evidence for a plastid in the early dinoflagellate Perkinsus marinus.
