xBackground: Copper nitrite reductases convert nitrite to nitric oxide in microorganisms. Results: The copper nitrite reductase from an ammonia oxidizing bacterium is unusually oxygen tolerant and has several unique structural features. Conclusion: The structure of this copper nitrite reductase enables it to function in an aerobic environment. Significance: This enzyme plays a key role in an environmentally important pathway.
