How Microbes Deal With "Toxic" Oxygen

This graphic shows the enzyme F420H2-Oxidase and the way it works. The cyan y-formed part is the gas-channel. The red arrow shows the way in of the oxygen to the catalytic cavity containing iron. The green arrow symbolizes the way out of the water. Yet, the blue-red sticks in the middle shows the flavin (FMN) accepting electrons from the reduced coenzyme F420, which brings the hydrogen necessary to convert the oxygen into water. Credit: S. Engilberge and T. Wagner.
