Fully identified: The pathway of protons

19:00 EST 8 Nov 2018 | AAAS

(Ruhr-University Bochum) The question how certain algal enzymes accomplish the high proton transfer rate for hydrogen production had in the past been subject to speculation. Dr. Martin Winkler, Dr. Jifu Duan, Professor Eckhard Hofmann and Professor Thomas Happe from Ruhr-Universität Bochum (RUB), together with colleagues from Freie Universität Berlin, traced the pathway of protons all the way into the active center of [FeFe]-hydrogenases. Their findings might enable scientists to create stable chemical reproductions of such efficient, yet fragile biocatalysts.
