Abstract

Life depends on the ability of living organisms to effectively harness the chemical potential of their environment, namely the sun, for energy, and a certain number of molecules which exist on the Earth’s surface, such as water, oxygen, carbon dioxide, nitrogen, etc. These molecules need to be activated if benefit is to be derived from them, which requires profound electronic modifications that only metal ions can provide. Truly extraordinary metalloenzymes with highly subtle mechanisms are r...

Abstract

La vie dépend de la capacité des organismes vivants à utiliser efficacement le potentiel chimique de leur environnement : le soleil, pour l’énergie, et un certain nombre de molécules accumulées à la surface de la terre (eau, oxygène, dioxyde de carbone, azote, etc.). Pour en tirer parti, il faut les activer, et cela nécessite des modifications électroniques profondes que seuls les ions métalliques permettent. Les métalloenzymes qui réalisent ces activations sont véritablement extraordinaires,...
