When electron flow through the cytochrome-mediated electron transport chain is blocked by inhibitors or mutations, the mitochondria of Neurospora crassa contain a KCN-insensitive alternative oxidase, encoded by the aod-1 gene, that transfers electrons directly from the ubiquinone pool to oxygen. The mechanism by which the enzyme is induced is unknown. Comparison of the sequence upstream of the N. crassa aod-1 gene with the corresponding region of Gelasinospora spp. and Aspergillus nidulans… CONTINUE READING
