Probing iron-sulfur clusters redox states by incorporating an unnatural amino acid

Abstract:

Iron-sulfur clusters (FeS) are crucial redox cofactors in nature. They are involved in complex enzyme catalysis, acting as electron-relays. Techniques focusing on studying the electron loading on FeS-cluster relays during enzyme catalysis are rather scarce. Here, a novel approach is described to probe the redox state of FeS clusters by infrared (IR) spectroscopy, exploiting the versatility of this technique across a range of sample conditions and during turnover.

In this work, an u...
