Hydrogenases are metalloenzymes subdivided into two classes that contain iron-sulfur clusters and catalyze the reversible oxidation of hydrogen gas (H(2)[Symbol: see text]left arrow over right arrow[Symbol: see text]2H(+)[Symbol: see text]+[Symbol: see text]2e(-)). Two metal atoms are present at their active center: either a Ni and an Fe atom in the [NiFe]hydrogenases, or two Fe atoms in the [FeFe]hydrogenases. They are phylogenetically distinct classes of proteins. The catalytic core of [NiFe… CONTINUE READING
