Crude extracts of a variety of Clostridium species reduce aromatic and aliphatic nitro compounds in the presence of hydrogen gas. Using different Clostridia, the uptake of hydrogen by p-nitrobenzoate is about 5--10 times faster than by 2-nitroethanol. Structurally rather different aliphatic nitro compounds show rates which differ by less than a factor of 3. Hydrogenase from Clostridium kluyveri and ferredoxins from Clostridium spec. La 1 and spinach have been purified. The combinations of the… CONTINUE READING
