NAD(P)(+)-reducing hydrogenases have been described to be composed of a diaphorase (HoxFU) and a hydrogenase (HoxYH) moiety. This study presents for the first time experimental evidence that in cyanobacteria, a fifth subunit, HoxE, is part of this bidirectional hydrogenase. HoxE exhibits sequence identities to NuoE of respiratory complex I of Escherichia coli. The subunit composition of the cyanobacterial bidirectional hydrogenase has been investigated. The oxygen labile enzyme complex was… CONTINUE READING
