Abstract

Recombinant formate dehydrogenase from the acetogen Clostridium carboxidivorans strain P7T, expressed in Escherichia coli, shows particular activity towards NADH-dependent carbon dioxide reduction to formate due to the relative binding affinities of the substrates and products. The enzyme retains activity over 2 days at 4°C under oxic conditions.
