Native-feather degradation by Fervidobacterium islandicum AW-1, a newly isolated keratinase-producing thermophilic anaerobe
Abstract. A native-feather-degrading thermophilic anaerobe was isolated from a geothermal hot stream in Indonesia. Isolate AW-1, identified as a member of the species Fervidobacterium islandicum, wasExpand

Cytochrome c biogenesis: the Ccm system.
Cytochromes of c-type contain covalently attached hemes that are formed via thioether bonds between the vinyls of heme b and cysteines within C(1)XXC(2)H motifs of apocytochromes. In diverseExpand

Ascochlorin is a novel, specific inhibitor of the mitochondrial cytochrome bc1 complex.
Ascochlorin is an isoprenoid antibiotic that is produced by the phytopathogenic fungus Ascochyta viciae. Similar to ascofuranone, which specifically inhibits trypanosome alternative oxidase by actingExpand

Intermonomer electron transfer between the low-potential b hemes of cytochrome bc₁.
Cytochrome (cyt) bc(1) is a structural dimer with its monomers consisting of the Fe-S protein, cyt b, and cyt c(1) subunits. Its three-dimensional architecture depicts it as a symmetrical homodimer,Expand

Across membrane communication between the Q(o) and Q(i) active sites of cytochrome bc(1).
The ubihydroquinone:cytochrome c oxidoreductase (cyt bc(1)) contains two catalytically active domains, termed the hydroquinone oxidation (Q(o)) and quinone reduction (Q(i)) sites, which are distantExpand

Zinc inhibition of bacterial cytochrome bc(1) reveals the role of cytochrome b E295 in proton release at the Q(o) site.
The cytochrome (cyt) bc(1) complex (cyt bc(1)) plays a major role in the electrogenic extrusion of protons across the membrane responsible for the proton motive force to produce ATP. Proton-coupledExpand
