Reactions
16 H2O + 16 ATP + 8 Reduced ferredoxin = 16 ADP + 16 Orthophosphate + 8 Oxidized ferredoxin + 8 e-
2 H+ + 2 e- = Hydrogen
2 H+ + 2 e- + Hydrazine = 2 NH3
2 H+ + Nitrogen + 2 e- = Diimine
2 H+ + 2 e- + Diimine = Hydrazine
16 H2O + 16 ATP + 8 H+ + 8 Reduced ferredoxin + Nitrogen = 16 ADP + 16 Orthophosphate + 2 NH3 + 8 Oxidized ferredoxin + Hydrogen
H2O + ATP + 2 H+ + Reduced ferredoxin + Acetylene = ADP + Orthophosphate + Oxidized ferredoxin + Ethylene
