Iron-Sulfur Proteins, the Most Numerous and Most Diversified Components of the Mitochondrial Electron Transfer System
The field of iron-sulfur (Fe-S) proteins has developed rapidly in the past ten years, in depth and in breadth, as is best witnessed by the appearance within the past few years of three volumes of a treatise exclusively devoted to these compounds (1). The great number and variety of recently discovered plant, bacterial and mammalian Fe-S proteins and of the reactions catalyzed by them, exemplify this progress. This presentation will focus on the last mentioned area, namely that of Fe-S proteins in mammalian systems, more precisely on those occurring in the electron transfer system of mitochondria.
