Mössbauer spectra obtained from the terminal dioxygenase protein of the benzene dioxygenase system from Pseudomonas putida show that it contains [2Fe--2S] centres similar to those of the two-iron plant-type ferredoxins. In the oxidized form the two iron atoms within the centre are high-spin ferric but with considerable inequivalence. In the reduced form the centre contains one extra electron, and this is localized on one of the iron atoms, which becomes high-spin ferrous.
