The strictly anaerobic Archaeon Ferroglobus placidus was grown chemolithoautotrophically on H2 and nitrate and analyzed for enzymes and coenzymes possibly involved in autotrophic CO2 fixation. The following enzymes were found [values in parentheses = μmol min–1 (mg protein)–1]: formylmethanofuran dehydrogenase (0.2), formylmethanofuran:tetrahydromethanopterin formyltransferase (0.6), methenyltetrahydromethanopterin cyclohydrolase (10), F420-dependent methylenetetrahydromethanopterin… CONTINUE READING
