General Information

General Information Comment Organism
physiological function the electrons for the enzymatic reaction are delivered to subunit HdrA via formate dehydrogenase Fdh or Hdr-associated hydrogenase Vhu. The delta subunit of hydrogenase, VhuD, is central to the interaction of both enzymes with HdrA. In the absence of Vhu, growth on hydrogen still occurs but involves F420-reducing hydrogenase Methanococcus maripaludis
