Microbe converts carbon monoxide into chemicals

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle


Researchers from the University of Illinois carried out a basic study to understand how some methanogenic archeons use carbon monoxide to produce methane via a pathway involving hydrogen as an intermediate. The group found that acetate and formate, and not methane were the major metabolic end-products.
