Generation of reducing power in chemosynthesis. VI. Energy-linked reactions in the chemoautotroph,Thiobacillus neapolitanus


Electron donors such as thiosulfate, sulfite, and ascorbate have been shown to enter the respiratory chain ofT. neapolitanus at the level of cytochromec. The enzymatic oxidation of these substrates catalyzed by the cytochrome oxidase (E. C. ofT. neapolitanus cell-free extracts was coupled to the generation of energy which could be utilized to… (More)
