CoB,CoM,ferredoxin:H2 oxidoreductase
This enzyme complex is found in H2-oxidizing CO2-reducing methanogenic archaea such as Methanothermobacter thermautotrophicus. It consists of a cytoplasmic complex of HdrABC reductase and MvhAGD hydrogenase. Electron pairs donated by the hydrogenase are transferred via its delta subunit to the HdrA subunit of the reductase, where they are bifurcated, reducing both ferredoxin and CoB-CoM heterodisulfide. The reductase can also form a similar complex with formate dehydrogenase, see EC, formate:CoB-CoM heterodisulfide,ferredoxin reductase. cf. EC, ferredoxin:CoB-CoM heterodisulfide reductase, EC, coenzyme F420:CoB-CoM heterodisulfide,ferredoxin reductase, and EC, dihydromethanophenazine:CoB-CoM heterodisulfide reductase.
