Description

Nitrobindin is a heme-containing lipocalin that may reversibly bind nitric oxide. This heme-binding domain forms a beta barrel structure, and in a small family of proteins from tetrapods, it is found C-terminal to a THAP zinc finger domain (a sequence-specific DNA binding domain). Members of this group are putatively related to fatty acid-binding proteins (FABPs) [PMID: 17172346].
