The genes for nitric oxide reductase (norCB) from Pseudomonas aeruginosa were identified and sequenced. They are located about 2 kb upstream of nirS, the structural gene for nitrite reductase. norC and norB encode cytochrome c (16 kDa) and cytochrome b (52 kDa) subunits of the enzyme, respectively. norCB is immediately followed by an open reading frame encoding a protein of 612 residues.
