ascorbic acid
-
addition of ascorbic acid to a reconstituted system composed of nitrite reductase and ferredoxin proteins leads to reduction of nitrite at a rate nearly equal to that is obtainable with the NADPH/ferredoxin-NADPH-reductase/ferredoxin-nitrite reductase system
additional information
-
no activation after treatment with 100 mM NaCl
