MetaCyc Enzyme: pyruvate flavodoxin oxidoreductase

Gene: nifJ Accession Number: G-370 (MetaCyc)

Species: Klebsiella pneumoniae

Subunit composition of pyruvate flavodoxin oxidoreductase = [NifJ]2

Molecular Weight of Polypeptide: 128.04 kD (from nucleotide sequence) [Bairoch93a ]

Gene-Reaction Schematic: ?


Enzymatic reaction of: pyruvate flavodoxin oxidoreductase

Synonyms: pyruvate:flavodoxin oxidoreductase

EC Number: 1.2.99.-

pyruvate + an oxidized flavodoxin + coenzyme A + H+ <=> acetyl-CoA + CO2 + a reduced flavodoxin

The reaction direction shown, that is, A + B ↔ C + D versus C + D ↔ A + B, is in accordance with the direction in which it was curated.

This reaction is reversible.

Alternative Substrates [Comment 1]:

Summary:
The function of the Klebsiella pneumoniae pyruvate flavodoxin oxidoreductase is to supply electrons to nitrogenase. The oxidoreductase employs a nitrogen fixation-specific flavodoxin, the nifF gene product. The oxidoreductase contains two Fe4S4 clusters. [Wahl87, Shah83, Bogusz81]

Cofactors or Prosthetic Groups: a [4Fe-4S] iron-sulfur cluster [Comment 2], thiamin diphosphate [Comment 3]

Inhibitors (Unknown Mechanism): sodium dithionite [Wahl87]
