Pseudomonas aeruginosa MdaB and WrbA are water-soluble two-electron quinone oxidoreductases with the potential to defend against oxidative stress


Water-soluble quinone oxidoreductases capable of reducing quinone substrates via a concerted two-electron mechanism have been implicated in bacterial antioxidant defence. Twoelectron transfer avoids formation of dangerously reactive semi-quinone intermediates, moreover previous work in Pseudomonas putida indicated a direct protective effect for the quinols… (More)
