nitrogen:cytochrome c oxidoreductase (N2O-forming)
The reaction is observed only in the direction of nitrous oxide reduction. Contains the mixed-valent dinuclear CuA species at the electron entry site of the enzyme, and the tetranuclear Cu-Z centre in the active site. In Paracoccus pantotrophus, the electron donor is cytochrome c552.
