DESCRIPTION
Also known as NUOB_PELPB, nuoB. NDH-1 shuttles electrons from NADH, via FMN and iron-sulfur (Fe-S) centers, to quinones in the respiratory chain. The immediate electron acceptor for the enzyme in this species is believed to be a menaquinone. Couples the redox reaction to proton translocation (for every two electrons transferred, four hydrogen ions are translocated across the cytoplasmic membrane), and thus conserves the redox energy in a proton gradient. NDH-1 is composed of 14 different subunits. Subunits NuoB, C, D, E, F, and G constitute the peripheral sector of the complex.
