Apodinitrogenase, which lacks the iron-molybdenum cofactor at its active site, is an oligomer that contains an additional protein not found in the active dinitrogenase tetramer. This associated protein in Klebsiella pneumoniae is shown to be the product of the nifY gene. When apodinitrogenase is activated by the addition of the iron-molybdenum cofactor… CONTINUE READING
