Accepted name: nitric oxide reductase [NAD(P)+, nitrous oxide-forming]
Reaction: N2O + NAD(P)+ + H2O = 2 NO + NAD(P)H + H+
Other name(s): fungal nitric oxide reductase; cytochrome P450nor; NOR (ambiguous)
Systematic name: nitrous oxide:NAD(P) oxidoreductase
Comments: A heme-thiolate protein (P-450). The enzyme from Fusarium oxysporum utilizes only NADH, but the isozyme from Trichosporon cutaneum utilizes both NADH and NADPH. The electron transfer from NAD(P)H to heme occurs directly, not requiring flavin or other redox cofactors.
