Fadi Bou-Abdallah (chemistry) has published the article "Iron release from ferritin by flavin nucleotides" in the Journal of BBA, Biochimica and Biophysica Acta (Biochim. Biophys.  Acta, 2013, 1830 (10), 4669-4674).  BBA is an internationally recognized journal that publishes important developments and mechanistic insights into important questions in biology with an impressive 5-year impact factor of 4.2. Dr. Bou-Abdallah's paper explores a new mechanism of iron release from ferritin, the major iron storage protein in human. The study was a collaborative effort involving Prof. Artem Melman at Clarkson University and Prof. Paolo Arosio at the University of Brescia in Italy.
