  1. 1. Prokaryotic respiratory supercomplexes : Studies of interactions between complexes III and IV

    Author : Olga Stah; Pia Ädelroth; Petra Hellwig; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; bioenergetics; membrane protein; bacterial respiration; electron transport chain; supercomplex; cytochrome c oxidase; membrane-anchored cytochrome c; cytochrome bc1 complex; electron transfer; proton transfer; time-resolved spectroscopy; apoptosis; biokemi; Biochemistry;

    Abstract : Respiratory processes for cellular energy conversion are carried out by the membrane-associated enzymes of the electron transfer chain (ETC). In recent years there has been emerging data showing that the members of the ETC organize into higher-level assemblies called supercomplexes (SCs) whose functional relevance is not yet fully understood.

  2. 2. Wiring Components of the Respiratory Chain : Modulation of the Respiratory Chain in Yeast and Bacteria

    Author : Jacob Schäfer; Peter Brzezinski; Dennis Winge; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Cytochrome c oxidase; Electron transfer; Membrane protein; Ligand; Kinetics; Mechanism; Rcf1; Cytochrome c; Respiratory supercomplex; Cryo-electron microscopy; Biochemistry; biokemi;

    Abstract : The enzyme complexes of the respiratory chain are organized in supramolecular assemblies, so-called respiratory supercomplexes. In the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae, these supercomplexes consist of two copies of complex III (bc1 complex) and one or two copies of complex IV (cytochrome c oxidase, CytcO). READ MORE

  3. 3. Role of respiratory supercomplexes : Electronic connection between complexes III and IV

    Author : Agnes Moe; Peter Brzezinski; James A. Letts; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; electron transfer; cytochrome c oxidase; cytochrome bc1; respiratory supercomplex; bioenergetics; membrane protein; biokemi; Biochemistry;

    Abstract : In the final step of cellular respiration, electrons are transferred through the respiratory chain to reduce molecular oxygen to water. The energy released in this chain is used to maintain a proton electrochemical gradient across the cell membrane, which is used, for example, by the ATP synthase to produce ATP. READ MORE

  4. 4. Heme-copper oxidases and nitric oxide : Reaction mechanisms and supercomplex formation

    Author : Ingrid Albertsson; Pia Ädelroth; Alessandro Giuffrè; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Heme-copper oxidase; nitrite reductase; nitric oxide reductase; nitric oxide; supercomplex; Paracoccus denitrificans; denitrification pathway; proton transfer pathway; C-type oxidase; Helicobacter pylori; Biochemistry; biokemi;

    Abstract : In the denitrification process where nitrate is stepwise reduced to nitrogen gas, the toxic molecule nitric oxide (NO) is formed as an intermediate. Nitric oxide is produced by the enzyme cd1 Nitrite reductase (cd1NiR) by reduction of nitrite and is later reduced to nitrous oxide by nitric oxide reductase (cNOR). READ MORE

  5. 5. Structural characterisation of mitochondrial macromolecular complexes using cryo-EM : Mitoribosome biogenesis and respiratory chain supercomplex

    Author : Sorbhi Rathore; Martin Ott; Daniel Wilson; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Mitochondria; mitoribosome biogenesis; mitoribosome assembly factors; yeast respiratory supercomplexes; single particle electron cryo-microscopy; cryo-EM sample preparation; Biochemistry; biokemi;

    Abstract : Mitochondria, popularly known as powerhouse of the cell, contain specialised mitoribosomes that synthesise essential membrane proteins. These essential proteins are required to form enzyme complexes, which carry out the process of oxidative phosphorylation (OXPHOS). READ MORE
