Abstract: ATP, the molecule used by living organisms to

supply energy to many different metabolic processes, is

synthesized mostly by the ATPase synthase using a proton or

sodium gradient generated across a lipid membrane. We

present evidence that a modified electrode surface integrating

a NiFeSe hydrogenase and a F1F0-ATPase in a lipid membrane

can couple the electrochemical oxidation of H2 to the synthesis

of ATP. This electrode-assisted conversion of H2 gas into ATP

could serve to generate this biochemical fuel locally when

required in biomedical devices or enzymatic synthesis of

valuable products.
