ENZYME entry: EC

Accepted Name
Nitric-oxide synthase (NADPH).
Alternative Name(s)
Endothelium-derived relaxation factor-forming enzyme.
Endothelium-derived relaxing factor synthase.
Nitric-oxide synthetase.
NO synthase.
Reaction catalysed
2 L-arginine + 3 NADPH + 4 O(2) <=> 2 L-citrulline + 2 nitric oxide + 3 NADP(+) + 4 H(2)O
  • The enzyme consists of linked oxygenase and reductase domains.
  • The eukaryotic enzyme binds FAD, FMN, heme (iron protoporphyrin IX) and tetrahydrobiopterin, and its two domains are linked via a regulatory calmodulin-binding domain.
  • Upon calcium-induced calmodulin binding, the reductase and oxygenase domains form a complex, allowing electrons to flow from NADPH via FAD and FMN to the active center.
  • The reductase domain of the enzyme from the bacterium Sorangium cellulosum utilizes a [2Fe-2S] cluster to transfer the electrons from NADPH to the active center.
