  • Molybdenum or tungsten is present at the active sites of over 30 distinct enzymes. The Mo enzyme nitrogenase, with its unique polynuclear metal sulfide clusters, falls in a class by itself All other Mo and W enzymes are mononuclear, with pterin-ene-dithiolate coordination. Recent x-ray crystallographic results on several of these enzymes confirm the potential additional presence of 0x0 (one or two), sulfido, cysteine, selenocysteine, serine, aquohydroxo, and/or a second dithiolene in the… CONTINUE READING
