FeMo cofactor biosynthesis protein nifB
The shelf life is related to many factors, storage state, buffer ingredients, storage temperature and the stability of the protein itself. Generally, the shelf life of liquid form is 6 months at -20°C/-80°C. The shelf life of lyophilized form is 12 months at -20°C/-80°C.
Repeated freezing and thawing is not recommended. Store working aliquots at 4°C for up to one week.
Involved in the biosynthesis of the iron-molybdenum cofactor (FeMo-co or M-cluster) found in the dinitrogenase enzyme of the nitrogenase complex in nitrogen-fixing microorganisms. NifB catalyzes the crucial step of radical SAM-dependent carbide insertion that occurs concomitant with the insertion of a 9th sulfur and the rearrangement/coupling of two [4Fe-4S] clusters into a [8Fe-9S-C] cluster, the precursor to the M-cluster.
