Mitochondrial respiratory chain complexes are arranged in supercomplexes within the inner membrane. Interaction of cytochrome c reductase (complex III) and cytochrome c oxidase (complex IV) was investigated in Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Projection maps at 15Å resolution of supercomplexes III2 + IV1 and III2 + IV2 were obtained by electron microscopy. Based on a comparison of our maps with atomic x-ray structures for complexes III and IV we present a pseudo-atomic model of their precise… Expand
Arrangement of the Respiratory Chain Complexes in Saccharomyces cerevisiae Supercomplex III2IV2 Revealed by Single Particle Cryo-Electron Microscopy*
TLDR
A three-dimensional cryo-EM map of the Saccharomyces cerevisiae respiratory supercomplex, composed of dimeric complex III flanked on each side by one monomeric complex IV, is presented for the first time. Expand
Structure of yeast cytochrome c oxidase in a supercomplex with cytochrome bc1
TLDR
The cryo-EM structure of budding yeast supercomplex III2IV2 is presented, providing molecular details of CIV (also known as cytochrome c oxidase) and revealing notable differences with mammalian systems. Expand
Structure of yeast cytochrome c oxidase in a supercomplex with cytochrome bc1.
Cytochrome c oxidase (complex IV, CIV) is known in mammals to exist independently or in association with other respiratory proteins to form supercomplexes (SCs). In Saccharomyces cerevisiae, CIV isExpand
Kinetic advantage of forming respiratory supercomplexes.
TLDR
Assuming realistic relative concentrations of membrane-bound components and cyt c and that all components diffuse independently, the data indicate that electron transfer between complexes III and IV can become rate limiting, and there is a kinetic advantage of bringing complexesIII and IV together in the membrane to form supercomplexes. Expand
Supramolecular organization of protein complexes in the mitochondrial inner membrane.
TLDR
Observations in mitochondria show that the mitochondrial inner membrane is highly organised and that the molecular events leading to ATP synthesis are carefully coordinated. Expand
Supercomplex-associated Cox26 protein binds to cytochrome c oxidase.
TLDR
A hydrophobic 6.4kDa protein, Cox26, is identified as a novel component of yeast mitochondrial supercomplex comprising respiratory complexes III and IV, and it is speculated that Cox26 may serve to regulate or support the Cox2 protein. Expand
Structure and Mechanism of Respiratory III–IV Supercomplexes in Bioenergetic Membranes
TLDR
The structural features and the functional significance of the nonobligate III2IV1/2 Saccharomyces cerevisiae mitochondrial supercomplex as well as the obligate III 2IV2 supercomplex from actinobacteria are reviewed. Expand
Conserved in situ arrangement of complex I and III2 in mitochondrial respiratory chain supercomplexes of mammals, yeast, and plants
TLDR
It is demonstrated that respiratory chain supercomplexes in situ have a conserved core of complex I and III2, but otherwise their stoichiometry and structure varies. Expand
Chapter 10 Purification of the cytochrome C reductase/cytochrome C oxidase super complex of yeast mitochondria.
TLDR
A strategy to isolate and characterize the cy tochrome c reductase/cytochrome c oxidase supercomplex of yeast, also termed the III + IV supercomplex, is described, based on lactate cultivation of fungi, gentle isolation of mitochondria, membrane solubilization by digitonin, sucrose gradient ultracentrifugation, and native gel electrophoresis.

Structure of a mitochondrial supercomplex formed by respiratory-chain complexes I and III.
TLDR
A model for how complexes I and III are spatially organized within the I+III2 supercomplex is presented, indicating a specific type of interaction between monomeric complex I and dimeric complex III in a 1:1 ratio. Expand
Assembly of Respiratory Complexes I, III, and IV into NADH Oxidase Supercomplex Stabilizes Complex I in Paracoccus denitrificans*
TLDR
This is the first chromatographic isolation of a complete “respirasome” of Paracoccus denitrificans complex I, and structural stabilization of a membrane protein complex thus appears as one of the major functions of respiratory chain supercomplexes. Expand
Gluing the Respiratory Chain Together
TLDR
It is reported here that in a crd1Δ strain of yeast (null in expression of CL synthase) ∼90% of complexes III and IV were observed as individual homodimers; only the supercomplex was observed with CRD1wild type cells, indicating that CL plays a central role in higher order organization of components of the respiratory chain of mitochondria.

TLDR
The close spatial arrangement of the c-type hemes unexpectedly suggests a direct and rapid heme-to-heme electron transfer at a calculated rate of up to 8.3 × 106 s−1. Expand

A dimeric state of ATP synthase seems to be specific for mitochondria, and monomeric ATP synth enzyme was found in Acetobacterium woodii, in P. denitrificans, and in spinach chloroplasts. Expand
Supercomplexes in the respiratory chains of yeast and mammalian mitochondria
TLDR
A fraction of total bovine ATP synthase was isolated in dimeric form, suggesting that a dimeric state is not limited to S.cerevisiae, but also exists in mammalian mitochondria, which guided us to present a model for a network of respiratory chain complexes: a ‘respirasome’. Expand
