OrganismBacteroides fragilis (strain 638R) [Complete proteome] [HAMAP]
Taxonomic identifier862962 [NCBI]
Taxonomic lineageBacteriaBacteroidetesBacteroidiaBacteroidalesBacteroidaceaeBacteroides

Protein attributes

Sequence length159 AA.
Sequence statusComplete.
Protein existenceEvidence at transcript level

General annotation (Comments)

Function

May alleviate iron toxicity in the presence of oxygen.

Catalytic activity

4 Fe2+ + 4 H+ + O2 = 4 Fe3+ + 2 H2O.

Subunit structure

Homooligomer of 24 subunits that assemble into a spherical protein shell (12 +/- 1 nM diameter) that can sequester at least 2000 iron atoms By similarity.

Induction

Expression is induced in the presence of excess iron in an oxidative environment but not in reduced anaerobic conditions. Is also regulated by oxyR. Ref.1

Sequence similarities

Belongs to the ferritin family. Prokaryotic subfamily.

Contains 1 ferritin-like diiron domain.
