Microbial-mediated soil uptake accounts for ∼80% of the global tropospheric dihydrogen (H2) sinks. Studies conducted over the last three decades provide indirect evidences that H2 soil uptake is mediated by free soil hydrogenases or by unknown microorganisms that have a high affinity for H2. The exact nature of these hypothetical free soil enzymes or of H2-consuming microorganisms remains elusive because the activity has never been observed in pure culture. Here, we present the first aerobic… CONTINUE READING
