    ..The bound metal ion then acts on the bending of the isoalloxazine ring of FAD as well as on the hydrophobicity of its microenvironment. ..
  3. Zeghouf M, Fontecave M, Macherel D, Coves J. The flavoprotein component of the Escherichia coli sulfite reductase: expression, purification, and spectral and catalytic properties of a monomeric form containing both the flavin adenine dinucleotide and the flavin mononucleotide cofactors. Biochemistry. 1998;37:6114-23 pubmed
    ..Despite the conservation of the bi-flavin-domain structure between these proteins over evolutionary time, each of them provides significantly different flavin reactivities. ..

    ..By Northern blotting, the probe for FMO1 specifically hybridized a 2.6-kilobase (kb) transcript in liver and lung samples only. The probe for FMO3 hybridized two transcripts of approximately 3 and 4.2 kb in the liver and lung samples. ..
