The genome sequence of Desulfatibacillum alkenivorans AK-01: a blueprint for anaerobic alkane oxidation.
Genomic analysis suggested a route to regenerate the fumarate needed for alkane activation via methylmalonyl-CoA and predicted the capability for syntrophic alkane metabolism, which was experimentally verified.
The diagnostic substrate bicyclohexane reveals a radical mechanism for bacterial cytochrome P450 in whole cells.
Profiling mechanisms of alkane hydroxylase activity in vivo using the diagnostic substrate norcarane.
Experimental and Theoretical Insights into the Hydrogen-Efficient Direct Hydrodeoxygenation Mechanism of Phenol over Ru/TiO2
Catalytic reduction of pyrolyzed biomass is required to remove oxygen and produce transportation fuels, but limited knowledge of how hydrodeoxygenation (HDO) catalysts work stymies the rational…
Effects of support identity and metal dispersion in supported ruthenium hydrodeoxygenation catalysts
Effects of pore diameter on particle size, phase, and turnover frequency in mesoporous silica supported cobalt Fischer–Tropsch catalysts
The non-heme diiron alkane monooxygenase of Pseudomonas oleovorans (AlkB) hydroxylates via a substrate radical intermediate 
Alkane-oxidizing metalloenzymes in the carbon cycle.
The focus of the review is on what is known about the relative abundances of these metalloenzymes, their metal ion requirements, and their reaction mechanisms.

The evidence that lead substitution for zinc in zinc-finger proteins contributes to the development of Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's Disease, and schizophrenia is reviewed.
Thermodynamics of Pb(ii) and Zn(ii) binding to MT-3, a neurologically important metallothionein.
Data indicate that Pb(2+) binding to both apo MT-3 and Zn7MT-3 is thermodynamically favourable, and implicate MT- 3 in neuronal lead biochemistry.
