The enzymes carbon monoxide dehydrogenase (CO dehydrogenase) and hydrogenase catalyse the release of energy from the simple diatomic molecules CO and H2. The ability of transition-metal centres to 1 harness the metabolic power of these compounds, which were highly prevalent in the early atmosphere of Earth, is thought to have been crucial to the development of primitive life.
