The periplasmic cytochrome c nitrite reductase (Nrf) system of Escherichia coli utilizes nitrite as a respiratory electron acceptor by reducing it to ammonium. Nitric oxide (NO) is a proposed intermediate in this six-electron reduction and NrfA can use exogenous NO as a substrate. This chapter describes the method used to assay Nrf-catalyzed NO reduction in whole cells of E. coli and the procedures for preparing highly purified NrfA suitable for use in kinetic, spectroscopic, voltammetric, and crystallization studies.
