cyclohexa-1,5-diene-1-carbonyl-CoA:ferredoxin oxidoreductase (aromatizing, ATP-forming)
An iron-sulfur protein. Requires Mg2+ or Mn2+. Inactive towards aromatic acids that are not CoA esters but will also catalyse the reaction: ammonia + acceptor + 2 ADP + 2 phosphate = hydroxylamine + reduced acceptor + 2 ATP + H2O. In the presence of reduced acceptor, but in the absence of oxidizable substrate, the enzyme catalyses the hydrolysis of ATP to ADP plus phosphate.
