Discovery and evolution of novel hemerythrin genes in annelid worms.
Stenkamp on the Raman spectroscopy and X-ray of multinuclear iron proteins, such as hemerythrin. After coffee the subjects were the biological effect of arsenicals, and a contribution by E.T.
Three of these proteins were uncharacterized, and one was annotated as a metalloprotein when blasted against the Swiss-Prot database: all four, however, showed homology to hemerythrin, an invertebrate oxygen-binding protein with two iron atoms (reviewed in Stenkamp, 1994), when blasted against the NCBI nr protein database on May 26, 2017.
We also found high representation of genes involved with oxygen and sulfide binding, namely hemoglobin alpha and beta subunits, as well as a hemerythrin (an iron-containing non-heme protein that binds oxygen).
