FeMo cofactor biosynthesis protein NifB, C-terminal (IPR034165)

Short name: NifB_C

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Domain relationships


NifB belongs to a family of iron-molybdenum cluster-binding proteins that includes NifX, and NifY, all of which are involved in the synthesis of an iron-molybdenum cofactor (FeMo-co) that binds the active site of the dinitrogenase enzyme as part of nitrogen fixation in bacteria. This domain is sometimes found fused to a N-terminal domain (the Radical SAM domain) in nifB-like proteins [PMID: 2747620, PMID: 26627238].
