Cytochrome cbb(3)-type oxidases are members of the heme copper oxidase superfamily and are composed of four subunits. CcoN contains the heme b-Cu(B) binuclear center where oxygen is reduced, while CcoP and CcoO are membrane-bound c-type cytochromes thought to channel electrons from the donor cytochrome into the binuclear center. Like many other bacterial members of this superfamily, the cytochrome cbb(3)-type oxidase contains a fourth, non-cofactor-containing subunit, which is termed CcoQ. In… CONTINUE READING
