  • FAD and NAD(P) together represent an ideal pair for coupled redox reactions in their capacity to accept two electrons and their redox potentials. Enzymes that bind both NAD(P) and FAD represent large superfamilies that fulfill essential roles in numerous metabolic pathways. Adrenodoxin reductase (AdxR) shares Rossmann fold features with some of these superfamilies but remains in a group of its own in the absence of sequence homology. This article documents the phylogenetic distribution of AdxR… CONTINUE READING
