Hydrogenase definition: An enzyme found in bacteria. It catalyzes the reduction of FERREDOXIN and other substances in the presence of molecular hydrogen and is involved in the electron transport of bacterial photosynthesis.
hydrogenase definition: specific enzyme (EC 1.18.99.1) that catalyzes the conversion of H+ to hydrogen gas via oxidation of ferredoxin; do not use for general term to cover other hydrogenating enzymes.
ferredoxin hydrogenase activity definition: Catalysis of the reaction: 2 reduced ferredoxin + 2 H+ = 2 oxidized ferredoxin + H2. [EC:1.12.7.2]
ferredoxin hydrogenase complex definition: An enzyme complex that catalyzes the oxidation of reduced ferredoxin. Hydrogenase contains iron-sulfur clusters, and some contain nickel; it can use molecular hydrogen for the reduction of a variety of substances. [EC:1.12.7.2]
