Cryo-Elektronenmikroskopie- und Kristallstruktur der F420-reduzierenden [NiFe]-Hydrogenase (FrhABG) aus Methanothermobacter marburgensis

Die Methanbildung aus H2 und CO2 ist die einzige Energie-liefernde Reaktion in vielen methanogenen Archaeen. Pro Mol gebildetem Methan werden vier Mol H2 verbraucht. Der Wasserstoff wird dabei durch Hydrogenasen aktiviert, wovon es in den meisten hydrogenotrophen Methanbildnern drei unterschiedliche...
