Flavodoxin-like (IPR001094)

Short name: Flavdoxin-like

Overlapping homologous superfamilies


Family relationships


This entry includes flavodoxins and flavodoxin-like proteins, such as NADPH-dependent diflavin oxidoreductase NDOR1 and nitric oxide synthases.

Flavodoxins act in various electron-transport systems as functional analogues of ferredoxins [PMID: 7830610]. Although flavodoxins are found only in certain bacteria and algae [PMID: 2597140] the proteins share similarity with a number of protein domains of both prokaryotic and eukaryotic origin [PMID: 3085707].
