Molybdenum nitrogenase catalyzes the reduction and coupling of CO to form hydrocarbons.


The molybdenum-dependent nitrogenase catalyzes the multi-electron reduction of protons and N(2) to yield H(2) and 2NH(3). It also catalyzes the reduction of a number of non-physiological doubly and triply bonded small molecules (e.g. C(2)H(2), N(2)O). Carbon monoxide (CO) is not reduced by the wild-type molybdenum nitrogenase but instead inhibits the… (More)
