Name  Rubrerythrin Short Name  Rubrerythrin
Type  Domain Description  Rubrerythrin (Rr), found in anaerobic sulphate-reducing bacteria [], is a fusion protein containing an N-terminal diiron-bindingdomain and a C-terminal domain homologous to rubredoxin []. The physiological role of Rr has not been identified.The 3-D structure of Desulphovibrio vulgaris rubrerythrin has been solved []. The structure reveals a tetramer of two-domainsubunits. In each monomer, the N-terminal 146 residues form a four-alpha-helix bundle containing the diiron-oxo site (centre I), and the C-terminal 45 residues form a rubredoxin-like FeS4 domain.
