Structural and Mechanistic Aspects of the Quinone Binding Sites of the bc Complexes

  • P. R. Rich

Abstract

The common genetic origin of the bc complexes from mitochondria, bacteria, fungi, and from higher plant chloroplasts has been revealed by striking similarities of their component redox centres1, of the orientations of these redox centres2, and of the amino acid sequences of the cytochrome b apoproteins3.
