ENZYME entry: EC 1.7.1.15

Accepted Name
Nitrite reductase (NADH).
Alternative Name(s)
Assimilatory nitrite reductase.
NADH-nitrite oxidoreductase.
Nitrite reductase (reduced nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide).
Reaction catalysed
Ammonia + 3 NAD(+) + 2 H(2)O <=> nitrite + 3 NADH
Cofactor(s)
FAD; Iron-sulfur; Siroheme.
Comment(s)
  • This prokaryotic enzyme is specific for NADH.
  • In addition to catalyzing the 6-electron reduction of nitrite to ammonia, the enzyme from Escherichia coli can also catalyze the 2-electron reduction of hydroxylamine to ammonia.
  • cf. EC 1.7.1.4.
