Ferredoxin [4Fe-4S]

This Pyrococcus furiosus Ferredoxin contains a single low potential [4Fe-4S] cluster. It is used to donate to and accept electrons from a variety of oxidoreductase-type enzymes.


  • Purity of >90%
  • Highly thermostable - active over broad range (up to 100°C)
  • Can be used as an electron donor/acceptor with various oxidoreductase-type enzymes

Ferredoxins are iron-sulfur proteins that mediate electron transfer in a range of metabolic reactions. The iron-sulfur clusters of ferredoxins can accept or discharge electrons, the effect being change in the oxidation states (+2 or +3) of the iron atoms. In this way, ferredoxin acts as electron transfer agents in biological redox reactions.
