|Gene:||narV||Accession Numbers: EG10644 (EcoCyc), b1465, ECK1459|
Component of: nitrate reductase Z (extended summary available)
narV encodes the γ subunit of nitrate reductase Z - it has 68% identity with narI (encoding the γ subunit of nitrate reductase A) but 87% similarity at the protein level; it is predicted to be the heme b binding subunit which transfers electrons from the quinone pool to the β subunit [Blasco90].

Nitrate reductase Z (NRZ) is a membrane bound molybdoenzyme responsible for the weak nitrate reductase activity present when cells are grown aerobically in a nitrate containing medium [Iobbi87].
By homology whith nitrate reductase A, nitrate reductase Z is a heterotrimer composed of the α (NarZ), β (NarY) and γ (NarV) chains. A fourth polypeptide, encoded by narW, is required for the incorporation of the molybdenum cofactor into the α subunit [Blasco90, Blasco92].
NRZ is constitutively expressed in a strain which carries the operon on a multicopy plasmid [Iobbi87]; NRZ is repressed by Fnr in anaerobiosis; NRZ is only slightly induced by nitrate; NRZ may function during the aerobic to anaerobic transition when cells are growing in the presence of nitrate [IobbiNivol90]. During entry into stationary phase, transcription of the narZYWV operon is induced, and induction is mainly dependent on the alternative sigma factor RpoS [Chang99].
Nitrate reductase Z also has tellurite reductase activity in wild-type E. coli [Avazeri97].
E. coli K-12 contains three nitrate reductases. Two of them, nitrate reductase A (NRA) and nitrate reductase Z (NRZ), are membrane bound and biochemically similar but differentially regulated (reviewed by [Bonnefoy94]. The third nitrate reductase, Nap is located in the periplasm.
