The ferredoxin-NADP(H) reductase from Rhodobacter capsulatus: molecular structure and catalytic mechanism.


The photosynthetic bacterium Rhodobacter capsulatus contains a ferredoxin (flavodoxin)-NADP(H) oxidoreductase (FPR) that catalyzes electron transfer between NADP(H) and ferredoxin or flavodoxin. The structure of the enzyme, determined by X-ray crystallography, contains two domains harboring the FAD and NADP(H) binding sites, as is typical of the FPR… (More)
