Each polypeptide chain of protein R2, the small subunit of ribonucleotide reductase from Escherichia coli, contains a stable tyrosyl radical and two antiferromagnetically coupled oxo-bridged ferric ions. A refined structure of R2 has been recently obtained. R2 can be converted into apoR2 by chelating out the metal cofactor and scavenging the radical. This study shows that apoR2 has a very strong affinity for four stable Mn2+ ions. The manganese-containing form of R2, named Mn-R2, has beenpmid:1328209 fatcat:ulbycgmto5b4xica4qeukor7ty
