Nature employs membrane-spanning proteins with electroactive cofactors as
conduits for electron exchange between intracellular and extracellular environments. In this issue of Chem, Kirchhofer et al. describe an amphiphilic ferrocene that imitates these proteins by increasing anodic current from lactate-oxidizing Shewanella oneidensis.
