Thesis (M.S.)--Georgetown University, 2010.; Includes bibliographical references.; Text (Electronic thesis) in PDF format. Iron-sulfur proteins are a class of proteins that contain an iron-sulfur cluster and have functions often involving electron transfer processes in cells. The rubredoxins are iron-sulfur proteins that have a range of potentials from -61 to 40 mV, and other homologous proteins such as rubrerythrin increase the range. Moreover, site-specific mutations can tune the potentials by about 50 to 100 mV. Here, reduction potentials are predicted for wild-type proteins from five different bacteria, as well as site-specific mutants in <italic>Clostridium pasteurianum
