Abstract

Carbon monoxide dehydrogenase (Cdh) has been anaerobically purified from Methanosarcina frisia Gö1. The enzyme is a Ni2+-, Fe2+-, and S2--containing alpha2beta2 heterotetramer of 214 kDa with a pI of 5.2 and subunits of 94 and 19 kDa. It has a Vmax of 0.3 mmol of CO min-1 mg-1 and Km values for CO and methyl viologen of approximately 0.9 mM and 0.12 mM, respectively. EPR spectroscopy on the reduced enzyme showed two overlapping signals: one indicative for 2 (4Fe-4S)+ clusters and a second signal that is atypical for standard Fe/S clusters. The latter was, together with high-spin EPR signals of the oxidized enzyme tentatively assigned to an Fe/S cluster of high nuclearity.
