  • Methanol dehydrogenase (MDH) enzymes are quinoproteins that require calcium or magnesium ion as well as pyrroloquinoline quinone as a cofactor for activity in the oxidation of methanol to formaldehyde. Lately, MDH enzymes containing lanthanide ions in the active site have been isolated in drastic conditions from Methylacidiphilum fumariolicum bacterium. The present theoretical study performed in the framework of the density functional theory employing the quantum mechanical cluster approach… CONTINUE READING
