Escherichia coli is known to couple aerobic respiratory catabolism to ATP synthesis by virtue of the primary generators of the proton motive force-NADH dehydrogenase I, cytochrome bo(3), and cytochrome bd-I. An E. coli mutant deficient in NADH dehydrogenase I, bo(3) and bd-I can, nevertheless, grow aerobically on nonfermentable substrates, although its sole terminal oxidase cytochrome bd-II has been reported to be nonelectrogenic. In the current work, the ability of cytochrome bd-II to generate… CONTINUE READING
