L-Lactate: cytochrome c oxidoreductase activity was detected in cells of strain A-20s of the nonsulfur haloalkalophilic purple bacterium Rhodovulum steppense. An electrophoretically homogeneous preparation of the enzyme was obtained by purification. The enzyme had a specific activity of 4.75 U/mg protein, a 81.9-fold purification degree, and a 2.2% yield. The kinetic and physicochemical characteristics were determined. The value of the Michaelis constant with lactate was 15 μM. The temperature optimum for the studied enzyme was 31°C; optimum of pH was 8.2. It was found that the enzyme was a homodimer with a molecular weight of ~140 kDa; the mass of individual subunit was 68 kDa.
