Overall Comment: Whilst the PDB code for this entry code cites the EC number as 220.127.116.11, upon closer inspection the closest sub-subclass to this mechanism is 1.7.1.-. There is no direct correspondence to this reaction, and so the serial number cannot be assigned correctly, however the closest match is 18.104.22.168. The EC number 22.214.171.124 has two distinct classes of reaction (and CATH code) associated with it, those that catalyse the the reduction of 6,7-dihydropteridine (126.96.36.1990), and those that catalyse the reduction of a broad range of nitroaromatic substrates and (more rapidly) quinones (188.8.131.52). This particular case shows the mechanism for the reduction of 2-nitrobenzoate. Escherichia coli nitroreductase a homodimeric enzyme with two active sites that is capable of using either NADH or NADPH as the reducing equivalents and has a substituted enzyme ('ping-pong') bi-bi mechanism.

Stepwise Description of the Reaction
|Step 1||NAD initiates an elimination of a hydride ion, which attacks the FMN in a nucleophilic addition.|
|Step 2||FMN eliminates the hydride, which attacks the nitro group of the substrate in a nucleophilic addition. The intermediate then deprotonates a water molecule.|
|Step 3||The intermediate eliminates water from itself, forming a nitroso intermediate.|
|Step 4||NAD initiates an elimination of a hydride ion, which attacks the FMN in a nucleophilic addition.|
|Step 5||FMN eliminates the hydride, which attacks the nitroso group of the intermediate in a nucleophilic addition. The intermediate then deprotonates a water molecule to produce the product.|
