Phospholipid requirements for the reconstitution of Complex-III vesicles exhibiting respiratory control (electron-transport control) were studied. Vesicles prepared from pure phosphatidylethanolamine gave maximal control ratios. Phosphatidylcholine alone did not support respiratory control, although these vesicles were capable of maintaining stable K+-diffusion gradients. Apparently Complex III cannot insert into a bilayer of phosphatidylcholine. Formation of mixed phosphatidylcholine… CONTINUE READING
