DFT Study on Nitrite Reduction Mechanism in Copper-Containing Nitrite Reductase.

Abstract

Dissimilatory reduction of nitrite by copper-containing nitrite reductase (CuNiR) is an important step in the geobiochemical nitrogen cycle. The proposed mechanisms for the reduction of nitrite by CuNiRs include intramolecular electron and proton transfers, and these two events are understood to couple. Proton-coupled electron transfer is one of the key… (More)
