PFAM accession number:PF00258
Interpro abstract (IPR008254):

This domain is found in a number of proteins including flavodoxin and nitric-oxide synthase. Flavodoxins are electron-transfer proteins that function in various electron transport systems. They bind one FMN molecule, which serves as a redox-active prosthetic group [ (PUBMED:2597140) ] and are functionally interchangeable with ferredoxins. They have been isolated from prokaryotes, cyanobacteria, and some eukaryotic algae. Nitric oxide synthase ( EC ) produces nitric oxide from L-arginie and NADPH. Nitric oxide acts as a messenger molecule in the body.

The flavodoxin-like domain is an around 170-residue domain with a flavin mononucleotide (FMN)-binding site. It is involved in electron transfer reactions [ (PUBMED:8160268) (PUBMED:7756978) ].

Structure analyses of several flavodoxin-like domains have shown that it is a wound alpha-beta-alpha fold with a central 5-stranded parallel hydrophobic beta-sheet flanked on either side by amphipathic alpha-helices [ (PUBMED:9237990) (PUBMED:10048323) (PUBMED:10610791) ]. The FMN is positioned at the tip of the C-terminal side of the beta-sheet [ (PUBMED:9237990) ]. The fold correlates with a highly conserved, repetitive sequence pattern in which hydrophobic residues cluster in beta-strands and have a 3-4-residue periodicity in alpha-helices [ (PUBMED:7756978) ].
