Abstract

In the bacterial periplasm, the reduction of nitrate to nitrite is catalysed by a periplasmic nitrate reductase (NAP) system, which is a species-dependent assembly of protein subunits encoded by the operon. The reduction of nitrate catalysed by NAP takes place in the 90 kDa NapA subunit, which contains a Mo--molybdopterin guanine dinucleotide cofactor and one [4Fe−4S] iron–sulfur cluster. A review of the operons in the genomes of 19 strains of shows that most genomes contain two operons. This is an unusual feature of this genus. The two NAP isoforms each comprise three isoform-specific subunits – NapA, a di-haem cytochrome NapB, and a maturation chaperone NapD – but have different membrane-intrinsic subunits, and have been named NAP- (NapEDABC) and NAP- (NapDAGHB). Sixteen genomes encode both NAP- and NAP-. The genome of the vigorous denitrifier OS217 encodes only NAP- and the genome of the respiratory nitrate ammonifier MR-1 encodes only NAP-. This raises the possibility that NAP- and NAP- are associated with physiologically distinct processes in the environmentally adaptable genus .
