Proton pumping by cytochrome oxidase: progress, problems and postulates.

Abstract

The current status of our knowledge about the mechanism of proton pumping by cytochrome oxidase is discussed. Significant progress has resulted from the study of site-directed mutants within the proton-conducting pathways of the bacterial oxidases. There appear to be two channels to facilitate proton translocation within the enzyme and they are important at… (More)
