Background: IsdB and IsdH proteins from Staphylococcus aureus strip heme iron from human hemoglobin. Results: The IsdH·hemoglobin complex shows how globin-binding and heme-binding NEAT domains of IsdH cooperate to remove heme from both chains of hemoglobin. Conclusion: The supradomain architecture of IsdH confers activity by precisely positioning the heme acceptor domain. Significance: Multiple IsdH·hemoglobin interfaces may be targets for new antibiotics. © 2014 by The American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Inc.
