IUBMB Enzyme Nomenclature


Accepted name: NAD+—dinitrogen-reductase ADP-D-ribosyltransferase

Reaction: NAD+ + [dinitrogen reductase] = nicotinamide + ADP-D-ribosyl-[dinitrogen reductase]

Other name(s): NAD—azoferredoxin (ADPribose)transferase; NAD—dinitrogen-reductase ADP-D-ribosyltransferase

Systematic name: NAD+:[dinitrogen reductase] (ADP-D-ribosyl)transferase

Comments: Together with EC (ADP-ribosyl-[dinitrogen reductase] hydrolase), controls the level of activity of EC nitrogenase.
