  1. For each enzyme, it is reported whether it presents nitroreductase and/or azoreductase activity: +: Activity has been established by reduction of tested compound; −: No activity was observed; NA: not applicable
  2. When activity was established, FMN-dependence and cofactor dependence/preference are indicated
