Ferredoxin-NADP(+) oxydoreductase (FNR) (EC=184.108.40.206) transfers electrons from ferredoxin (or flavodoxin) to NADP(+) to generate NADPH. In eucaryotes, the nuclear-encoded, chloroplast-targeted enzyme contains two domains: an FAD-binding domain (see <PDOC51384>) and an NADP(+)-binding domain. With the exception of Gloeobacter violaceous PCC 7421, the predicted sequences of all cyanobacterial petH genes, encoding FNR, correspond to a protein containing three domains. Two domains at the C-terminus correspond to the FAD- and NADP(+)-binding domains of higher plants FNR protein, which compose the catalytic domains of the enzyme. The N-terminal domain is similar to phycobilisome (PBS)-associated linker proteins from numerous cyanobacteria [1,2,3]:
The cpcD-like domain has an elongated shape and consists of a three-stranded β-sheet, two α-helices, one of which has only about one turn, and the connecting random coil segments (see <PDB:1B33>) .
The profile we developed covers the entire cpcD-like domain.Last update:
