Increase in the production of hydrogen from biomass-derived glucose and attainment of the maximum molar yield of H2, can be achieved through the enzymes of the pentose phosphate cycle in conjunction with a hyperthermophilic hydrogenase. This process centers on three NADP dependent enzymes, glucose-6 phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PDH), 6-phosphogluconate dehydrogenase (6PGDH) and hydrogenase from Pyrococcus furiosus. The dehydrogenases are currently obtained from mesophilic sources. However, in… CONTINUE READING
