Sulfide is oxidized in the mitochondria of the lugworm Arenicola marina. Mitochondrial sulfide oxidation is coupled with oxygen consumption and with an equimolar production of thiosulfate [Völkel, S. & Grieshaber, M. K. (1994) Mar. Biol. 118, 137-147]. Mitochondrial respiration in the presence of malate (or succinate) and ADP but without sulfide could be completely inhibited by rotenone, antimycin, cyanide, and sulfide. Only 40% inhibition was achieved by salicylhydroxamic acid. Sulfide… CONTINUE READING
