Abstract Hydrogenases (H2ases) are enzymes that catalyze the reversible two-electron redox chemistry of H2. Most (but not all) H2ases are now known to contain Ni, which is intimately associated with unusual epr signals that are characteristic of the enzymes. A recent crystal structure of the H2ase from Desulfovibrio gigas reveals that the Ni in these enzymes is not an isolated metal center, but part of a Ni, Fe dinuclear cluster. The structure of the biological Ni, Fe cluster is compared with… Expand
