N2O is a potent greenhouse gas and stratospheric reactant that has been steadily on the rise since the beginning of industrialization. It is an obligatory inorganic metabolite of denitrifying bacteria, and some production of N2O is also found in nitrifying and methanotrophic bacteria. We focus this review on the respiratory aspect of N2O transformation catalysed by the multicopper enzyme nitrous oxide reductase (N2OR) that provides the bacterial cell with an electron sink for anaerobic growth… 
A new CuZ active form in the catalytic reduction of N2O by nitrous oxide reductase from Pseudomonas nautica
TLDR
Both the reaction of stoichiometric amounts of substrate and the electrochemical studies show that the active CuZ° species, generated in the absence of reductants, can rearrange to the resting non-active CuZ state.
Bacterial nitrous oxide respiration: electron transport chains and copper transfer reactions.
TLDR
This chapter presents models of the ETCs involved in clade I and clade II N2O respiration as well as of the respective NosZ maturation and maintenance processes.
Biochemical characterization of the purple form of Marinobacter hydrocarbonoclasticus nitrous oxide reductase
TLDR
The purple form of the enzyme was biochemically characterized and was shown to be a redox active species, although it is still catalytically non-competent, as its specific activity is lower than that of the activated fully reduced enzyme.
No laughing matter: the unmaking of the greenhouse gas dinitrogen monoxide by nitrous oxide reductase.
TLDR
Using enzyme from anoxic preparations with CuZ in the [4Cu:2S] state, N2O was shown to bind between the CuA and CuZ sites, suggesting direct electron transfer from CuA to the substrate after its activation by CuZ.
Nitrous Oxide Reductases
TLDR
This chapter describes the multicopper enzyme N2OR that has been intensively studied in Pseudomonas stutzeri and Paracoccus species and shows the phylogenetic relationship among NosZ proteins across nine taxonomic lineages from organisms for which a complete NosZ sequence is known.
Regulation of denitrification at the cellular level: a clue to the understanding of N2O emissions from soils
TLDR
Although the denitrifying community of soils may differ in their propensity to emit N2O, it may be difficult to predict such characteristics by analysis of the community composition, as a common feature of strains tested in the laboratory is that the relative amounts of N 2O produced is correlated with acidity.
The catalytic cycle of nitrous oxide reductase - The enzyme that catalyzes the last step of denitrification.
TLDR
An overview of the spectroscopic, kinetics and structural properties of the two forms of the catalytic "CuZ center" is given, together with the current knowledge on nitrous oxide reduction mechanism by Nitrous oxide reductase and its intermediate species.
Nature’s way of handling a greenhouse gas: the copper-sulfur cluster of purple nitrous oxide reductase
TLDR
A recent structure of anoxically isolated nitrous oxide reductase from Pseudomonas stutzeri revealed the bridging ligand to be sulfide, S2-, and showed an unprecedented side-on mode of Nitrous oxide binding to this form of CuZ.
Energy recovery in the form of N2O by denitrifying bacteria
Abstract Nitrous oxide (N2O) is a highly energetic oxidant. This work documents a novel process that recovers N2O by inhibiting the activity of the nitrous-oxide reductase (N2OR) in denitrifying
Genomics of Ammonica-Oxidizing Bacteria and Insights into Their Evolution

Formation of a cytochrome c-nitrous oxide reductase complex is obligatory for N2O reduction by Paracoccus pantotrophus.
TLDR
It is proposed that a conformational change in N2OR is induced by its specific interaction with cytochrome c that in turn either permits electron transfer between CuA and CuZ or controls the rate of N2O decomposition at the active site.
Crystal structure of nitrous oxide reductase from Paracoccus denitrificans at 1.6 A resolution.
TLDR
The crystal structure of a blue form of the enzyme N2OR that was purified under aerobic conditions from Paracoccus denitrificans is reported, suggesting that this structure may provide an efficient electron transfer path for reduction of the bound N2O.
N2O reduction and HD formation by nitrogenase from a nifV mutant of Klebsiella pneumoniae
TLDR
Observation that different numbers of electrons are stored in CO-inhibited than in noninhibited dinitrogenase before H2 is released suggests that the mutant enzyme has more sites responsible for H2 evolution than the wild-type enzyme, whose H2 Evolution is not inhibited by CO.
A novel type of catalytic copper cluster in nitrous oxide reductase
TLDR
The copper anomalous signal was used to solve the crystal structure of N2O reductase from Pseudomonas nautica by multiwavelength anomalous dispersion, and reveals that the CuZ center belongs to a new type of metal cluster, in which four copper ions are liganded by seven histidine residues.
Multiple forms of the catalytic centre, CuZ, in the enzyme nitrous oxide reductase from Paracoccus pantotrophus.
TLDR
EPR and magnetic circular dichroism spectra suggest that the basic Cu4S structure is common to both, and steady-state activity of the aerobic enzyme preparation is slightly increased despite the fact the catalytic centre does not undergo detectable redox changes.
Electron transport to nitrous oxide in Paracoccus denitrificans
TLDR
The results indicate that nitrous oxide could be an obligate intermediate in the reduction of nitrite to nitrogen gas and that ctype cytochrome(s) are involved in electron transport to Nitrous oxide.
Revisiting the Catalytic CuZ Cluster of Nitrous Oxide (N2O) Reductase
TLDR
In the CuZ cluster, in organic sulfur chemical determination and the high resolution structure of Pd N2OR identified a bridging inorganic sulfur instead of an oxygen, which reconciles the novel Cu Z cluster with the hitherto puzzling spectroscopic data.

TLDR
There is currently a broadening of the scope of NO functionality and an increase in awareness that other heme-based NO-metabolizing systems contribute to the overall capability of the prokaryotic cell to cope with NO both in anaerobic and aerobic environments, including the pathogen-host interface.
Requirements for CuA and Cu-S Center Assembly of Nitrous Oxide Reductase Deduced from Complete Periplasmic Enzyme Maturation in the Nondenitrifier Pseudomonas putida
TLDR
expression of only three maturation factors together with nosRZ in trans was sufficient to produce catalytically active holo-N(2)O reductase in the nondenitrifying background, suggesting that these obligatory factors are required for Cu-S center assembly.

TLDR
The current knowledge on denitrifying genes is summarized and their genetic organizations are compared by using new sequences resulting from the analysis of finished and unfinished microbial genomes with a special attention paid to the clustering of genes encoding different classes of reductases.
