The aa3-type cytochrome c oxidase of Rhodobacter sphaeroides has been overexpressed up to seven fold over that in wild-type strains by engineering a multicopy plasmid with all the required oxidase genes and by establishing optimum growth conditions. The two operons containing the three structural genes and two assembly genes for cytochrome c oxidase were(More)
The cytochrome c oxidase enzyme from the Rhodobacter sphaeroides bacteria exists as a complex of four peptide subunits, two hemes, and a variety of lipids and metal ions held together by non-covalent forces. While the native enzyme functions as an associated unit, this complex usually dissociates during MALDI- TOF analysis. Through the use of matrix(More)
