hydroxylamine:ferricytochrome-c oxidoreductase
The enzymes from the nitrifying bacterium Nitrosomonas europaea [1,4] and the methylotrophic bacterium Methylococcus capsulatus [5] are hemoproteins with seven c-type hemes and one specialized P-460-type heme per subunit. The enzyme converts hydroxylamine to nitrite via an enzyme-bound nitroxyl intermediate [3]. While nitrite is the main product, the enzyme from Nitrosomonas europaea can produce nitric oxide as well [2].
