Human frataxin is an allosteric switch that activates the Fe-S cluster biosynthetic complex

Cellular depletion of the human protein frataxin is correlated with the neurodegenerative disease Friedreich's ataxia and results in the inactivation of Fe-S cluster proteins. Most researchers agree that frataxin functions in the biogenesis of Fe-S clusters, but its precise role in this process is unclear. Here we provide in vitro evidence that human frataxin binds to a Nfs1, Isd11, and Isu2 complex to generate the four-component core machinery for Fe-S cluster biosynthesis.
