Principles of hydrogen catalysis in the presence of oxygen by a [NiFe] hydrogenase from E. coli

Abstract:

[NiFe] hydrogenases are metalloenzymes that act as highly efficient molecular electrocatalysts for the interconversion of protons and molecular hydrogen. Unlike any other known molecular electrocatalyst, the members of a subgroup of respiratory membrane-bound [NiFe] hydrogenases are able to maintain H2 catalysis in the sustained presence of O2. This O2-tolerance depends on the ability to respond to oxidative inactivation by O2 by exclusively form...
