  Domain Name: Rieske
Rieske domain; a [2Fe-2S] cluster binding domain commonly found in Rieske non-heme iron oxygenase (RO) systems such as naphthalene and biphenyl dioxygenases, as well as in plant/cyanobacterial chloroplast b6f and mitochondrial cytochrome bc(1) complexes. The Rieske domain can be divided into two subdomains, with an incomplete six-stranded, antiparallel beta-barrel at one end, and an iron-sulfur cluster binding subdomain at the other. The Rieske iron-sulfur center contains a [2Fe-2S] cluster, which is involved in electron transfer, and is liganded to two histidine and two cysteine residues present in conserved sequences called Rieske motifs. In RO systems, the N-terminal Rieske domain of the alpha subunit acts as an electron shuttle that accepts electrons from a reductase or ferredoxin component and transfers them to the mononuclear iron in the alpha subunit C-terminal domain to be used for catalysis.
No pairwise interactions are available for this conserved domain.
