Nitrogenase iron protein

Gene

nifH

Organism
Alkaliphilus metalliredigens (strain QYMF)
Status
Reviewed-Annotation score: -Protein inferred from homologyi

Functioni

The key enzymatic reactions in nitrogen fixation are catalyzed by the nitrogenase complex, which has 2 components: the iron protein and the molybdenum-iron protein.UniRule annotation
