Researchers from the Ruhr-Universität Bochum (RUB; Bochum, Germany), in collaboration with Max Planck Institute Mülheim (Mülheim, Germany), and Université Grenoble (Grenoble, France) have discovered an efficient process for hydrogen biocatalysis using E. coli bacteria, RUB announced. The researchers developed semi-synthetic hydrogenases—hydrogen-generating enzymes—by adding the protein's biological precursor to a chemically synthesized inactive iron complex. "Extracting hydrogenases from living cells is highly difficult...
