Anabaena variabilis (strain ATCC 29413 / PCC 7937)
Status
Reviewed-Annotation score: Annotation score: 4 out of 5-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.

Catalytic activityi

8 reduced ferredoxin + 8 H+ + N2 + 16 ATP + 16 H2O = 8 oxidized ferredoxin + H2 + 2 NH3 + 16 ADP + 16 phosphate.

Cofactori

[4Fe-4S] clusterNote: Binds 1 [4Fe-4S] cluster per dimer.
