The mechanism of nitrate reduction in fungi and higher plants has been cleared up by Nason and E v a n s 3 8 and Nicholas and Nason 1 1 . In experiments with purified cell-free extracts they found that the nitrate->nitrite reaction is catalyzed by an enzyme with either flavin adenine dinucleotide (FAD) or flavin mononucleotide (FMN) as the prosthetic group and moreover molybdenum as a constituent. Reduced dior triphosphopyridine nucleotide (DPNH or TPNH) are required as electron donor. The… Expand
