  1. 1. Genes for cytochrome c and cytochrome c oxidase synthesis in Bacillus subtilis

    University dissertation from Department of Microbiology, Lund University

    Author : Jenny Bengtsson; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2001]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Microbiology; cytochrome; cytochrome c oxidase; Bacillus subtilis; cytochrome c synthesis; bacteriology; virology; mycology; Mikrobiologi; bakteriologi; virologi; mykologi;

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Cytokromer är hem-innehållande proteiner som transporterar elektroner. Hem är den järninnehållande molekyl som binder syre i hemoglobin i de röda blodkropparna i blodet hos t ex människor. Cytokromer har viktiga funktioner i olika typer av organismer: bakterier, växter och djur. READ MORE

  2. 2. Modulators of Saccharomyces cerevisiae cytochrome c oxidase Implications for the regulation of mitochondrial respiration

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Biochemistry and Biophysics, Stockholm University

    Author : Camilla Rydström Lundin; Stockholms universitet.; [2018]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; cytochrome c oxidase; cytochrome c; OXPHOS; membrane protein; kinetics; ligand-binding; electron transfer; Rcf1; respiratory supercomplexes; Saccharomyces cerevisiae; biokemi; Biochemistry;

    Abstract : Oxidative phosphorylation in mitochondria is performed by enzyme complexes and electron carriers that reside in the inner membrane. It is now generally accepted that these respiratory enzyme complexes assemble into larger so-called supercomplexes. However, it is presently not known why, under which conditions or how these supercomplexes form. READ MORE

  3. 3. Structural elements involved in protein-mediated proton transfer Implications from studies of cytochrome c oxidase

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Biochemistry and Biophysics, Stockholm University

    Author : Ann-Louise Johansson; Stockholms universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; cytochrome c oxidase; proton transfer; biokemi; Biochemistry;

    Abstract : Proton transfer is one of the most common reactions in biological systems. During energy conversion inside a cell, proton transfer is crucial to maintain an electrochemical proton gradient across the cell membrane. This gradient is in turn used to e.g. READ MORE

  4. 4. Structure and Function of Cytochrome c Oxidase

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Institutionen för biokemi och biofysik

    Author : Gisela Brändén; Stockholms universitet.; [2006]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; cytochrome c oxidase; proton pumping; proton transfer; electron transfer; X-ray crystallography; flow flash; NATURAL SCIENCES Chemistry Biochemistry; NATURVETENSKAP Kemi Biokemi;

    Abstract : Aerobic organisms, ranging from bacteria to humans, obtain their energy through the process of respiration. Electrons from the breakdown of food are transported through the membrane-bound enzyme complexes of the respiratory chain, to the terminal acceptor molecule, oxygen. READ MORE

  5. 5. Electron and proton transfer in cytochrome c oxidase

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Biochemistry and Biophysics, Stockholm University

    Author : Magnus Brändén; Stockholms universitet.; [2003]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; cytochrome c oxidase; electron transfer; proton transfer; proton; MEDICINE Chemistry Biochemistry; MEDICIN Kemi Biokemi; biokemi; Biochemistry; Biophysics; biofysik;

    Abstract : This doctoral thesis describes results from studies on the mechanisms by which the enzyme cytochrome c oxidase catalyses the reduction of oxygen to water. Cytochrome c oxidase is the last integral enzyme complex of the socalled respiratory chain in the mitochondrial inner membrane (plasma membrane of bacteria). READ MORE
