Structurally unique plant cytochrome c oxidase isolated from wheat germ, a rich source of plant mitochondrial enzymes.


Purification and characterization of plant cytochrome c oxidases have been impeded by the difficulty of obtaining enough plant mitochondria. We have found commercial wheat germ to be a rich and convenient source of mitochondrial membranes containing respiratory chain complexes in ratios and amounts similar to mitochondria prepared from etiolated seedlings… (More)
