It is well known that efficient functioning of photosynthetic (PET) and respiratory electron transport (RET) in cyanobacteria requires the presence of either cytochrome c(6) (Cytc(6)) or plastocyanin (PC). By contrast, the interaction of an additional redox carrier, cytochrome c(M) (Cytc(M)), with either PET or RET is still under discussion. Here, we focus on the (putative) role of Cytc(M) in cyanobacterial respiration. It is demonstrated that genes encoding the main terminal oxidase… CONTINUE READING
