Family

Electron transport complex, subunit RnfG/RsxG (IPR010209)

Short name: Elect_transpt_RnfG/RsxG

Family relationships

None.

Description

The six-subunit complex RnfABCDGE in Rhodobacter capsulatus (Rhodopseudomonas capsulata) encodes an apparent NADH oxidoreductase responsible for electron transport to nitrogenase, necessary for nitrogen fixation [PMID: 9492268]. A closely related complex in Escherichia coli, RsxABCDGE (Reducer of SoxR), reduces the 2Fe-2S-containing superoxide sensor SoxR, active as a transcription factor when oxidized [PMID: 12773378]. Although this family of putative NADH oxidoreductase complexes exists in many of the same species as the related NQR family, a Na(+)-translocating NADH-quinone reductase (IPR003667), RnfABCDGE is distinct.

This entry describes the G subunit.
