HybC is the large, [NiFe] containing subunit of hydrogenase 2. The nickel and iron atoms are coordinated by 4 Cys thiolates plus 3 diatomic ligands (2 cyano and a carbonyl). Acquisition of the [NiFe] cofactor, C-terminal processing of HybC and subsequent association with the small subunit (HybO) are required prior to export by the Tat system [Rodrigue96, Rodrigue99, Zhang03f, Dubini03] (and reviewed in [Forzi07].

Subunit of: hydrogenase 2

Synonyms: HYD2, hydrogenase-2, hydrogen:menaquinone oxidoreductase 2

Species: Escherichia coli K-12 substr. MG1655

Subunit composition of hydrogenase 2 = [HybA][HybB][HybO][HybC]
         hydrogenase 2 - [Fe-S] binding, ferredoxin-type component HybA = HybA (summary available)
         hydrogenase 2 - integral membrane subunit HybB = HybB (summary available)
         hydrogenase 2, small subunit = HybO (summary available)
         hydrogenase 2, large subunit = HybC (summary available)

Summary:
Hydrogenase 2 is a membrane-bound, [Ni-Fe] enzyme produced under anaerobic conditions. Hydrogenase 2 is a respiratory enzyme which couples hydrogen oxidation in the periplasm to reduction of the inner membrane quinone pool [Ballantine86, Sargent98]. Hydrogenase 2 participates in H(2) dependent reduction of fumarate, dimethyl sulfoxide and trimethylamine N-oxide [Sawers85, Laurinavichene01, Pinske15] (and see [Unden97].

Hydrogenase 2 is an oxygen sensitive enzyme - it is unable to catalyse H(2) oxidation under aerobic conditions [Laurinavichene01, Lukey10]. Hydrogenase 2 functions optimally at redox potentials lower than -100 to -150 mV [Laurinavichene02, Lukey10]. Hydrogenase 2 is capable of bidirectional catalysis in vitro [Lukey10] and in vivo [Pinske15]. Hydrogenase 2 can function as an H(2) evolving enzyme (ie. as a proton reductant) during fermentative growth with glycerol; this endergonic reaction is driven by the membrane proton gradient and probably functions to prevent over reduction of the quinone pool [Pinske15].

Hydrogenase 2 uses menaquinone/demethylmenaquinone to couple hydrogen oxidation to fumarate reduction during anaerobic respiratory growth with glycerol and fumarate and also during H(2) evolution during fermentation with glycerol; hydrogenase 2 can rapidly switch between H(2) evolution and H(2) oxidation modes in vivo [Pinske15].

Trypsin treatment of membranes releases an active, soluble fragment of hydrogenase 2 which consists of the large and small subunits [Ballantine86]. Hydrogenase 2 is encoded within the hyb operon (hybGFEDCBAO); the complete enzyme complex is thought to consist of the HybA, HybB, HybC and HybO subunits [Menon94, Dubini02]. HybOC forms the core catalytic dimer anchored to the membrane via a hydrophobic helix at the C-terminus of HybO; HybA (a ferredoxin type protein) and HybB (an integral membrane protein) are essential for shuttling electrons to the quinone pool [Dubini02, Pinske15].

HybC and HybO are coordinately assembled and processed; acquisition of the [NiFe] cofactor, C-terminal processing of HybC and subsequent association with the small subunit (HybO) are required prior to export by the Tat system [Rodrigue96, Sargent98, Rodrigue99, Zhang03f, Dubini03]. Maturation and membrane targeting of hydrogenase 2 involves proteins encoded within the hyp and hyb operons (HypB, HypD, HypE, HybD, HybE and HybG) and the HypF protein (reviews: [Bock06, Forzi07]).

Expression of the hyb operon is induced under anaerobic conditions and repressed by nitrate [Richard99].

E. coli K-12 contains a second membrane associated hydrogenase - hydrogenase 1 - and a third hydrogenase - hydrogenase 3 - which is part of the formate hydrogenlyase complex. A potential fourth hydrogenase - hydrogenase 4 - is encoded within the hyf operon.
