CC   -!- FUNCTION: This molybdenum-iron protein is part of the nitrogenase
CC       complex that catalyzes the key enzymatic reactions in nitrogen
CC       fixation.
CC   -!- CATALYTIC ACTIVITY: 8 reduced ferredoxin + 8 H(+) + N(2) + 16 ATP
CC       + 16 H(2)O = 8 oxidized ferredoxin + H(2) + 2 NH(3) + 16 ADP + 16
CC       phosphate.
CC   -!- COFACTOR: Binds 1 8Fe-7S cluster per heterodimer. {ECO:0000250}.
CC   -!- COFACTOR: Binds 1 7Fe-Mo-9S-C-homocitryl cluster per subunit.
CC       {ECO:0000250}.
CC   -!- SUBUNIT: Tetramer of two alpha and two beta chains. Forms complex
CC       with the iron protein (nitrogenase component 2).
CC   -!- SIMILARITY: Belongs to the NifD/NifK/NifE/NifN family.
CC       {ECO:0000305}.
