|Gene:||hybO||Accession Numbers: G7554 (MetaCyc), b2997, ECK2991|
Synonyms: yghV, hyb0, hydrogenase 2 β subunit
Species: Escherichia coli K-12 substr. MG1655
Component of: hydrogenase 2 (extended summary available)
HybO is the small subunit of hydrogenase 2; sequence analysis suggests it contains three Fe-S clusters; expected to be two [4Fe-4S] and one [3Fe-4S] as has been shown by x-ray crystallography for the small subunit of a Desulfovibrio gigas [Ni-Fe] hydrogenase [Sargent98a, Volbeda95]. HybO contains a twin-arginine signal sequence which is required for membrane targeting by the Tat system. HybO accumulates in a soluble precursor form in a hypB mutant which is unable to insert nickel into the large subunit (HybC) of hydrogenase 2 [Sargent98a].
HybO and HybC are coordinately assembled and processed; the presence of both subunits, acquisition of the [Ni-Fe] cofactor and subsequent processing of HybC are required for export of the complex by the Tat system [Rodrigue96, Rodrigue99].

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, Sargent98a]. Hydrogenase 2 participates in H(2) dependent reduction of fumarate, dimethyl sulfoxide and trimethylamine N-oxide [Sawers85, Laurinavichene01, Pinske14] (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 [Pinske14]. 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 [Pinske14].
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 [Pinske14].
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, Pinske14].
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, Sargent98a, Rodrigue99, Zhang03k, 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 respiratory 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.
