flavoprotein

 [fla″vo-pro´tēn]
a conjugated protein containing a flavin nucleotide.

fla·vo·pro·tein

(flā'vō-prō'tēn),
A compound protein possessing a flavin as prosthetic group. Compare: flavoenzyme.

flavoprotein

(flā′vō-prō′tēn′, -tē-ĭn)
n.
Any of a group of enzymes containing flavin bound to protein and acting as dehydrogenation catalysts in biological reactions.

flavoprotein

a group of conjugated proteins that make yellow enzymes essential for cellular respiration. They also are involved in liberation of hydrogen from oxidation of fatty acids and function as electron acceptors in oxidative phosphorylation.

fla·vo·pro·tein

(flā'vō-prō'tēn)
A compound protein possessing a flavin as prosthetic group.
Compare: flavoenzyme

flavoprotein

a protein that is combined with flavin prosthetic groups and acts as an intermediate carrier in respiratory chains between dehydrogenases and cytochromes. See ELECTRON TRANSPORT SYSTEM.

flavoprotein

Fp; a conjugated protein containing a flavin nucleotide.
