  报告摘要Diaphorase (DI) is an enzyme capable of transferring electrons between NAD(P)H and chemical electron mediators such as benzyl viologen (BV). Biomimetic electron transport chains, comprised of an NADH-dependent or NADPH-dependent DI and a suitable electron mediator, were designed to enhance the electron transfer rates by lowering activation energy barriers. The H2 generation rates via the biomimetic chains increased by approximately five-fold compared to those catalyzed by [NiFe]-hydrogenase only. We demonstrated an in vitro enzymatic pathway that can produce H2 at extremely high rates by splitting water energized by starch in the stoichiometric reaction C6H10O5 + 7H2O -> 12H2 + 6CO2. This pathway of fifteen hyperthermophilic enzymes is comprised of ATP-free starch phosphorylation, an NAD- rather than NADP-based pentose phosphate pathway, a BV-conjugated DI, and a [NiFe]-hydrogenase. The highest reaction rate of 530 mmole H2/L/h (i.e., more than 11 L of H2 per L of bioreactor per h) was accomplished at 80°C. The concept of biomimetic electron transport chains could also be applied to biosystems for artificial photosynthesis. A plausible application scheme of the biomimetic chains for CO2 fixation will be elucidated.
