Family: Flavin oxidoreductase frp familySequence: FASTA
Cross-database IDs: Link
Organism: Escherichia coli K12Location: Chromosome
Compound: Chromium (Cr)Description: A major oxygen-insensitive nitroreductase of Escherichia coli, is a flavoprotein that is able to reduce chromate to less soluble and less toxic Cr(III). Reduction of nitroaromatic compounds using NADH. Reduces nitrofurazone by a ping-pong bi-bi mechanism possibly to generate a two-electron transfer product. Major component of the oxygen-insensitive nitroreductase activity in E.coli.
Length (amino acid): 240
