A ferredoxin isolated from Desulfovibrio africanus contains a [3Fe-4S] cluster that reversibly binds a copper atom, yielding a stable product with a greatly increased reduction potential. The reaction is readily detected in protein molecules adsorbed as a film on an electrode surface. Electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) and magnetic circular dichroism (MCD) spectra of oxidized and reduced bulk solution products support their assignment as [Cu3Fe-4S]2+ (S = 1/2) and [Cu3Fe-4S]1+ (S = 2) resp...Expand abstract
