Metallomics Issue 4 NOW online

Oglesby-Sherrouse and Murphy, Metallomics, 2013,5, 276-286

Welcome to the new Issue of Metallomics devoted to Microbial metallomics, a growing area of research focused on understanding the roles of metals and metallo-biomolecules in simple organisms. We have two great new covers for you to enjoy and the interesting editorial by Partha Basu, Professor of Chemistry and Biochemistry at the Duquesne University and Guest Editor of this issue. Enjoy Issue 4 now!

Our outside front cover shows red and white colonies of Shigella dysenteriae cultured on plate. In their critical review, Amanda Oglesby-Sherrouse and Erin Murphy explain how iron regulated bacterial small RNAs control gene expression and influence bacterial physiology and virulence.

The interesting inside front cover of this issue features the mini review of Peter Kroneck and colleagues at the University of Konstanz, Germany. The team describes how the archaeon Archaeoglobus fulgidus obtains energy by reducing sulfate at high temperature and examine the activity of three key enzymes: ATP sulfurylase, adenosine 5′-phosphosulfate reductase and dissimilatory sulfite reductase.

Conserving energy with sulfate around 100 °C – structure and mechanism of key metal enzymes in hyperthermophilic Archaeoglobus fulgidus
