26342079 Our findings highlight that the ISD11 R68A/R68L mutation display reduced affinity to form a stable subcomplex with NFS1, and thereby fails to prevent NFS1 aggregation resulting in impairment of the Fe-S cluster biogenesis
24217246 The data presented here show that the Isu1 suppressor mimics the frataxin effects on Nfs1, explaining the bypassing activity.
23940031 NFS1 binds preferentially to the D-state of ISCU while mtHSP70 binds preferentially to the D-state of ISCU and HSC20 binds preferentially to the S-state of ISCU.
23593335 the interaction of NFS1 and MOCS3 in the cytosol of human cells, is reported.
22689995 Nfs1, the cysteine desulfurase responsible for providing sulfur for cluster formation, is required for the increased Isu stability occurring after disruption of cluster formation on or transfer from Isu
20877624 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
19720832 Icp55 protease and its substrate Nfs1 appear to be dual distributed between the nucleus and mitochondria
18650437 Nfs1 acts as a sulfur donor for MOCS3, a protein involved in molybdenum cofactor biosynthesis
16847322 Results show that human Nfs1 is required inside mitochondria for efficient maturation of cellular iron/sulfur proteins.
16527810 the cytosolic form of ISCS is a functional cysteine desulfurase that can collaborate with cytosolic ISCU to promote de novo iron-sulfur cluster formation
