Iron-cytochrome-c reductase

Iron-cytochrome-c reductase

In enzymology, an iron---cytochrome-c reductase (EC number| is an enzyme that catalyzes the chemical reaction

:ferrocytochrome c + Fe3+ ightleftharpoons ferricytochrome c + Fe2+

Thus, the two substrates of this enzyme are ferrocytochrome c and Fe3+, whereas its two products are ferricytochrome c and Fe2+.

This enzyme belongs to the family of oxidoreductases, specifically those acting on a heme group of donors with other acceptors. The systematic name of this enzyme class is ferrocytochrome-c:Fe3+ oxidoreductase. This enzyme is also called iron-cytochrome c reductase. It employs one cofactor, iron.
