What's your poison?
Hydrogenases catalyze the reversible formation of dihydrogen from two electrons and two protons. The maturation of the [FeFe]-hydrogenase active-site cofactor (H cluster) requires three gene products, HydE, HydF, and HydG. Cyanide has been characterized as one of the products of tyrosine cleavage by the S-adenosylmethionine-dependent enzyme HydG, clarifying its role in H-cluster biosynthesis. DOA=deoxyadenosine.
