  1. 1. Cyanobacterial Hydrogen Metabolism - Uptake Hydrogenase and Hydrogen Production by Nitrogenase in Filamentous Cyanobacteria

    Author : Pia Lindberg; Peter Lindblad; Kornél Kovács; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Microbiology; cyanobacteria; biohydrogen; Nostoc; hydrogen production; hydrogen evolution; hydrogen metabolism; nitrogenase; hydrogenase; hydrogen; uptake hydrogenase; hupSL; hydrogen uptake mutant; uptake hydrogenase mutant; photobioreactor; hydrogenase accessory genes; hyp; transcription; RT-PCR; NtcA; mass spectrometry; heterocyst; Mikrobiologi; Microbiology; immunology; infectious diseases; Mikrobiologi; immunologi; infektionssjukdomar;

    Abstract : Molecular hydrogen is a potential energy carrier for the future. Nitrogen-fixing cyanobacteria are a group of photosynthetic microorganisms with the inherent ability to produce molecular hydrogen via the enzyme complex nitrogenase. This hydrogen is not released, however, but is recaptured by the bacteria using an uptake hydrogenase. READ MORE

    Abstract : With accellerating global warming and pollution problems a change of energy regime is necessary. Solar energy offers a clean and unlimited energy source of enormous potential. Due to it’s intermittenet nature solar energy must be stored - ideally in the chemical bond of a carrier molecule. READ MORE

  3. 3. The birth of the hydrogenase : Studying the mechanism of [FeFe] hydrogenase maturation

    Author : Brigitta Németh; Gustav Berggren; Ann Magnuson; Mohamed Atta; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; HydF; HydA; [FeFe] hydrogenase maturation; semi-synthetic enzymes; Biokemi; Biochemistry;

    Abstract : The [FeFe] hydrogenases are ancient metalloenzymes that catalyse the reversible interconversion between protons, electrons and molecular hydrogen. Despite the large structural variability within the [FeFe] hydrogenase family, the active site, the so called “H-cluster” is present in every representative.
