Abstract

Six Gram-negative bacteria (, and ) were shown to contain an FA-type protein capable of activating aponitrate reductase, apotrimethylamine -oxide reductase and apoformate dehydrogenase of . Protein FA activity was highest in and lowest in . All the species also contained the low- (≤ 1500) heat-resistant material previously reported to be necessary for the protein-FA-dependent activation of nitrate reductase.
