|Abstract:||This review presents applicability of carboxydotrophic bacterial carbon monoxide dehydrogenase (CODH) in carbon sequestration and bioenergy generation. CODH catalyzes reversible conversion of CO2 to CO. These bacteria use CO and CO2 as source of energy and carbon for growth, and therefore, play a vital role in maintaining very low CO level in the environment. The enzyme finds application in detection and mitigation of CO levels, and also to produce bioenergy from CO2.|
