Aggregatibacter actinomycetemcomitans is an oral pathogen for aggressive periodontitis, and encodes a triheme c-containing membrane-bound enzyme, quinol peroxidase (QPO) that catalyzes peroxidase activity using quinol in the respiratory chain. In the previous work, we have characterized recombinant QPO purified from the membrane fraction of Escherichia coli… CONTINUE READING
