Clostridium acidurici electron-bifurcating formate dehydrogenase.


PMID 23872566

Abstract

Cell extracts of uric acid-grown Clostridium acidurici catalyzed the coupled reduction of NAD(+) and ferredoxin with formate at a specific activity of 1.3 U/mg. The enzyme complex catalyzing the electron-bifurcating reaction was purified 130-fold and found to be composed of four subunits encoded by the gene cluster hylCBA-fdhF2.
