Summary
The conversion of nitrogen to bioavailable ammonia is a process that is crucial for life on earth. In Nature, the nitrogenase family of enzymes is able to catalyze this conversion under ambient temperatures and pressures. Modifications of the nitrogenase enzyme also allow it to catalyze the reduction of carbon monoxide.
