CommentNitrogenase is the enzyme of biological nitrogen fixation. The most wide-spread and most efficient nitrogenase contains a molybdenum cofactor. This protein family, VnfK, represents the beta subunit of the vanadium (V)-containing alternative nitrogenase. It is homologous to NifK and AnfK, of the molybdenum-containing and the iron (Fe)-only types, respectively.
