The mechanism of inhibition by H2 of H2-evolution by hydrogenases

Author affiliations

Abstract

By analysing the results of experiments carried out with two FeFe hydrogenases and several “channel mutants” of a NiFe hydrogenase, we demonstrate that whether or not hydrogen evolution is significantly inhibited by H2 is not a consequence of active site chemistry, but rather relates to H2 transport within the enzyme.
