EC 1.7.2.6     
Accepted name: hydroxylamine dehydrogenase
Reaction: (1) hydroxylamine + H2O + 4 ferricytochrome c = nitrite + 4 ferrocytochrome c + 5 H+
(2) hydroxylamine + 3 ferricytochrome c = nitric oxide + 3 ferrocytochrome c + 3 H+
Other name(s): HAO (ambiguous); hydroxylamine oxidoreductase (ambiguous); hydroxylamine oxidase (misleading)
Systematic name: hydroxylamine:ferricytochrome-c oxidoreductase
Comments: 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].
