|12 reduced ferredoxin + 12 H(+) + N(2) + 40 ATP + 40 H(2)O <=> 12 oxidized ferredoxin + 3 H(2) + 2 NH(3) + 40 ADP + 40 phosphate|
- This enzyme, originally isolated from the bacterium Azotobacter
vinelandii, is a complex of two components (namely dinitrogen
reductase and dinitrogenase).
- Dinitrogen reductase is a [4Fe-4S] protein, which, in the presence of
ATP, transfers an electron from ferredoxin to the dinitrogenase
- Dinitrogenase is a vanadium-iron protein that reduces dinitrogen to
two molecules of ammonia in three successive two-electron reductions
via diazine and hydrazine.
- Compared with EC 18.104.22.168, this enzyme produces more dihydrogen and
consumes more ATP per dinitrogen molecule being reduced.
- Unlike EC 22.214.171.124, this enzyme can also use CO as substrate,
producing ethylene, ethane and propane.
