The mechanism by which reducing power is transferred from the biological quinols, ubiqninol and plastoquinol, to their respective acceptors, presumably cytochrome cl in mitochondria and cytochrome f of chloroplasts, is obscure. The difficulty arises from the fact that, at around neutral pH, the quinols are primarily two-equivalent hydrogen atom donors, whereas their acceptors are primarily one-equivalent electron acceptors. This immediately raises the qnestion of the properties and possible… CONTINUE READING
