The periplasmic reduction of the electron acceptors nitrate (Em +420 mV) and trimethylamine-N-oxide (TMAO; Em +130 mV) by Nap and Tor reductases is widespread in Gram-negative bacteria and is usually considered to be driven by non-energy conserving quinol dehydrogenases. The EpsilonproteobacteriumCampylobacter jejuni can grow by nitrate and TMAO respiration and it has previously been assumed that these alternative pathways of electron transport are independent of the proton-motive menaquinol… CONTINUE READING
