A concern voiced in connection with recent sequencing of cytochrome c from the Rhodospirillaceae or purple non-sulphur photosynthetic bacteria1–3 is that molecular information might be of little use in deciphering bacterial phylogeny because of the possibility of lateral transfer of genes and the consequent scrambling of the genetic record. This could be true for many proteins, of course, but the immediate question is, is it true for cytochromes c, for which extensive primary sequence1–3 and X… CONTINUE READING
