Spectacular advances have been made in recent years in our understanding of the structure and function of the membrane-bound protein complexes in respiratory and photosynthetic electron-transport chains. Perhaps as a result of this focus of attention, there is a temptation to regard quinones as a passive pool of redox carriers whose only function is to shuttle reducing equivalents between more ' interesting' protein complexes. However, it is now clear that quinones play additional vital roles… CONTINUE READING
