Enzyme Commission Primary Name: ferric-chelate reductase (NADH)

Enzyme Commission Synonyms: ferric chelate reductase (ambiguous), iron chelate reductase (ambiguous), NADH:Fe3+-EDTA reductase, NADH2:Fe3+ oxidoreductase, ferB (gene name), Fe(II):NAD+ oxidoreductase

Standard Gibbs Free Energy (ΔrG in kcal/mol): 10.873596Inferred by computational analysis [Latendresse13]

Enzyme Commission Summary:
Contains FAD. The enzyme catalyses the reduction of bound ferric iron in a variety of iron chelators (siderophores), resulting in the release of ferrous iron. The plant enzyme is Involved in the transport of iron across plant plasma membranes. The enzyme from the bacterium Paracoccus denitrificans can also reduce chromate. cf. EC, ferric-chelate reductase (NADPH) and EC, ferric-chelate reductase [NAD(P)H].
