Supersedes EC numbers:,

Note that this reaction equation differs from the official Enzyme Commission reaction equation for this EC number, which can be found here .

The reaction direction shown, that is, A + B ↔ C + D versus C + D ↔ A + B, is in accordance with the Enzyme Commission system.

Most BioCyc compounds have been protonated to a reference pH value of 7.3, and some reactions have been computationally balanced for hydrogen by adding free protons. Please see the PGDB Concepts Guide for more information.

Mass balance status: Balanced.

A flavoprotein. Can also reduce flavodoxin.

Enzyme Commission Summary:
A flavoprotein (FAD). In chloroplasts and cyanobacteria the enzyme acts on plant-type [2Fe-2S] ferredoxins, but in other bacteria it can also reduce bacterial [4Fe-4S] ferredoxins and flavodoxin.
