Domain

Flavodoxin/nitric oxide synthase (IPR008254)

Short name: Flavodoxin/NO_synth

Domain relationships

Description

This domain is found in a number of proteins including flavodoxin and nitric-oxide synthase. Flavodoxins are electron-transfer proteins that function in various electron transport systems. They bind one FMN molecule, which serves as a redox-active prosthetic group [PMID: 2597140] and are functionally interchangeable with ferredoxins. They have been isolated from prokaryotes, cyanobacteria, and some eukaryotic algae. Nitric oxide synthase (EC:1.14.13.39) produces nitric oxide from L-arginie and NADPH. Nitric oxide acts as a messenger molecule in the body.
