Structure of a Zinc Porphyrin-Substituted Bacterioferritin and Photophysical Properties of Iron Reduction

Recent work from the Kurtz group at University of Texas was published in Biochemistry journal, presenting X-ray crystal structure of ZnPP-Bfr as well as the photophysical properties of the iron-loaded ZnPP-Bfr to better understand the process of photosensitized reductive iron release. The crystal structure of ZnPP-Bfr shows a unique six-coordinate zinc in the ZnPP with two axial methionine sulfur ligands.
