The apoprotein of yeast cytochrome c1 is made outside the mitochondria as a larger precursor which is then processed in at least two steps. In the first step, it is transported across both mitochondrial membranes and converted by a matrix-localized protease to an intermediate form whose molecular weight is between that of the precursor and the mature form.(More)
The six small subunits (IV-VII, VIIa, VIII) of yeast cytochrome c oxidase are encoded by nuclear genes and imported into the mitochondria. We have isolated the gene for subunit IV from a yeast genomic clone bank and determined its complete nucleotide sequence. We have also isolated subunit IV from purified yeast cytochrome c oxidase and determined most of(More)
Cytochrome c oxidase purified from the bacterium Paracoccus denitrificans was analyzed by analytical ultracentrifugation. In the detergent octyltetra/pentaoxyethylene (C8E45), the isolated enzyme exhibits a molecular weight of 79,000 to 84,000. The detergent-solubilized enzyme is thus a monomer which contains one copy of each of the two subunits.
At least three subunits of yeast mitochondrial F1-ATPase (ATP phosphohydrolase, EC and at least two subunits of cytochrome c oxidase (ferrocytochrome c:oxygen oxidoreductase, EC are synthesized outside the mitochondria and imported into the organelles as individual precursors that are between 2000 and 6000 daltons larger than the mature(More)
The complete amino acid sequence of the nuclearly coded cytochrome c oxidase subunit VI was determined for a genetically defined haploid strain of Saccharomyces cerevisiae. The subunit contains 108 amino acids, has Mr = 12,627, is acidic (net charge of -9.7 at pH 7) and is quite polar (polarity index, 50.9%). Distribution of charges within the polypeptide(More)
The radiation hard opto-electronic links being developed for the ATLAS Semiconductor Tracker (SCT) and Pixel detectors are described. The results of the radiation tests on all the on-detector components are reviewed. Results of environmental tests of irradiated opto-packages are mentioned. New results on Single Event Upset Studies are presented and the(More)
Optical data transmission has been chosen for the ATLAS Pixel and SemiConductor Tracker to deliver both timing and control information to the detector modules and transmit tracking data to the remote computer room. Radiation hardness of individuals optical components and their ASICs drivers have been reported in previous papers. We will report here the(More)
Details are given of a selective negative-ion mass-spectrometric method appropriate for the ultratrace determination of metals and organic compounds by means of their complexes. Direct introduction of the sample into the ion-source, attachment of low-energy electrons, and selected-ion monitoring are described, and comparative data are given relating to(More)
The application of secondary-electron capture negative-ion (SECNI) mass spectrometry to the analysis of metal-organic compounds is described and typical examples are discussed. Negative-ion mass spectra are simple, molecular anions and ligand ions being the predominant species. Metallic or ligand impurities are readily identified by this technique, which(More)
