Structure, Function and Oxidation Levels of Hemerythrin

  • Donald M. KurtzJr.
Conference paper

Abstract

The hemerythrins are a group of non-heme iron oxygen-carrying proteins found in several phyla of marine invertebrates, most notably sipunculids. The hemerythrins pose interesting evolutionary, physiological, and chemical contrasts to the more widespread hemoglobins. Perhaps the most intriguing question to a chemist is: how does nature adapt a non-heme iron site to reversibly bind molecular oxygen?
