Nitrogenase catalyses the ATP-dependent reduction of N2 to NH3, and is composed of two proteins, dinitrogenase (MoFe protein or component I) and dinitrogenase reductase (Fe protein or component II)1,2. Dinitrogenase contains a unique prosthetic group (iron-molybdenum cofactor, FeMoco) comprised of Fe, Mo and S, which has been proposed as the site of N2 reduction3–5. Biochemical and genetic studies of Nif– (nitrogen fixation) mutants of Klebsiella pneumoniae which are defective in nitrogen… CONTINUE READING
