Abstract

The recent elucidation of the structures of iron-only hydrogenases from the microorganisms Clostridium pasteurianum and Desulfovibrio desulfuricans has revealed that the presumed site of reversible hydrogen oxidation exists as a unique, protein-associated organometallic prosthetic group. Details of the hydrogenase structures provide insight into the chemical mechanism of this highly evolved catalyst.
