Protein
Copper-containing nitrite reductase
Gene
nirK
Organism
Rhizobium sullae (Rhizobium hedysari)
Status
Reviewed - Annotation score: 3 out of 5 - Protein inferred from homologyi

Functioni

Catalytic activityi

Nitric oxide + H2O + ferricytochrome c = nitrite + ferrocytochrome c + 2 H+.

Cofactori

Binds 1 Cu2+ ion. The Cu2+ ion is held by residues from each of 2 monomers of the trimer. Nitrite is bound to the Cu2+ ion site. Pseudoazurin is the physiological electron donor for the Cu-NIR in vitro By similarity.
Binds 1 Cu+ ion. The Cu+ ion is bound within a single monomer By similarity.
FAD By similarity.
