Genome Property Definition Page

AccessionGenProp0633
Namenitrogenase, Mo-containing
TypeSYSTEM
DescriptionThe most common type of nitrogenase contains molybdenum as well as iron. Alternative nitrogenases with homologous alpha and beta subunits but somewhat different sets of accessory proteins use vanadium and iron, or just iron. So far, species with one or more alternative nitrogenases also contain a MoFe nitrogenase. This genome property consists of the structural subunits of the MoFe nitrogenase and specific accessory factors.
