Abstract

Previously, the Ni-SIr state of [NiFe] hydrogenase was found to convert to the Ni-SIa state by light irradiation. Herein, large activation energies and a large kinetic isotope effect were obtained for the reconversion of the Ni-SIa state to the Ni-SIr state after the Ni-SIr-to-Ni-SIa photoactivation, suggesting that the Ni-SIa state reacts with H2O and leaves a bridging hydroxo ligand for the Ni-SIr state.
