ENZYME entry: EC

Accepted Name
ferric-chelate reductase (NADPH).
Alternative Name(s)
ferric chelate reductase.
iron chelate reductase.
NADPH:Fe(3+)-EDTA reductase.
Reaction catalysed
2 a Fe(II)-siderophore + H(+) + NADP(+) <=> 2 a Fe(III)-siderophore + NADPH
  • The enzyme, which is widespread among bacteria, catalyzes the reduction of ferric iron bound to a variety of iron chelators (siderophores), including ferric triscatecholates and ferric dicitrate, resulting in the release of ferrous iron.
  • The enzyme from the bacterium Escherichia coli has the highest efficiency with the hydrolyzed ferric enterobactin complex ferric N-(2,3-dihydroxybenzoyl)-L-serine.
  • Cf. EC and EC
