    FEBS Lett 492:45-9. 2001
    ..In contrast, no covalent flavin was detected when threonine-225 was replaced by leucine. The data show that the FMN attachment does not require assembly of the enzyme and are consistent with the unusual threonine attachment site...

    P Hellwig
    Department of Biochemistry, University of Illinois, 600 South Mathews Avenue, Urbana, Illinois 61801 3364, USA
    Biochemistry 40:1077-82. 2001
    ..It is suggested that upon reduction of the bound ubiquinone at the high affinity site, D75 takes up a proton, possibly sharing it with ubiquinol...
  3. pmc Pathways for proton release during ubihydroquinone oxidation by the bc(1) complex
    A R Crofts
    Department of Biochemistry, University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign, Urbana, IL 61801, USA
    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 96:10021-6. 1999
    ..H(+) transfer from semiquinone to the carboxylate side chain and rotation to the position found in the myxothiazol structure provide a pathway for release of the second proton...
  4. ncbi Glutamate-89 in subunit II of cytochrome bo3 from Escherichia coli is required for the function of the heme-copper oxidase
    J Ma
    Department of Biochemistry, University of Illinois, Urbana 61801, USA
    Biochemistry 38:15150-6. 1999
    ..Thus, it appears that the inhibition resulting from the E89II mutation is due to a block in the reduction of the heme-copper binuclear center, expected for K-channel mutants...
  5. ncbi The cbb3-type cytochrome c oxidase from Rhodobacter sphaeroides, a proton-pumping heme-copper oxidase
    M Toledo-Cuevas
    Departamento de Bioquimica, UNAM, Ciudad Universitaria, Mexico D F, Mexico
    Biochim Biophys Acta 1365:421-34. 1998
    ..Analysis of proton translocation in several strains shows that cytochrome cbb3 is a proton pump. We also conclude that cytochromes cbb3 and aa3 are the only cytochrome c oxidases in the respiratory chain of R. sphaeroides...
  6. ncbi The Na+ and K+ transport deficiency of an E. coli mutant lacking the NhaA and NhaB proteins is apparent and caused by impaired osmoregulation
    M L Verkhovskaya
    Department of Medical Chemistry, Institute of Biomedical Sciences, University of Helsinki, Finland
    FEBS Lett 439:271-4. 1998
    ..We suggest that this mutant is primarily deficient in osmoregulation rather than in cation transport per se...

    A V Bogachev
    Department of Bioenergetics, A. N. Belozersky Institute of Physico-Chemical Biology, Moscow State University, Moscow 119899, Russia
    Biochemistry 40:7318-23. 2001
    ..These data led us to conclude that the sodium-dependent step within the Na+-NQR is located between the noncovalently bound FAD and the covalently bound FMN...
