"The large subunit of arsenite oxidase is similar to other members of the
dimethylsulfoxide (DMSO) reductase family of molybdenum enzymes, particularly
the dissimilatory periplasmic nitrate reductase from Desulfovibrio
desulfuricans, but is unique in having no covalent bond between the
polypeptide and the Mo atom. The small subunit has no counterpart among known
Mo protein structures but is homologous to the Rieske [2Fe-2S] protein domain
of the cytochrome bc1 and cytochrome b6f
complexes and to the Rieske domain of naphthalene 1,2-dioxygenase".
