Namesulfite reductase complex, Salmonella/Clostridium type
DescriptionSeveral different types of enzyme complex are designated sulfite reductase, and each may resemble some enzyme with differing specificity more closely than they resemble each other. This property represents a bacterial three subunit type as found in several species of Clostridium and in Salmonella. In Salmonella, it is described as a siroheme-containing sulfite reductase, reversibly inhibited by oxygen, that can produce H2S from sulfite under anaerobic conditions when provided with a fermentable sugar.
