Overlapping entries


Nitrous oxide (N2O) reductase (EC: is a copper-containing enzyme that catalyses the two-electron reduction of the greenhouse gas N2O to N2 [PMID: 10700275]. N2O reductase has two domains, an N-terminal 7-bladed beta-propeller domain that contains the CuZ catalytic centre, and a C-terminal domain with a cupredoxin fold that is homologous to the CuA domain of bovine cytochrome c oxidase (COXII).
