In anaerobically grown Paracoccus denitrificans the dissimilatory nitrate reductase is linked to the respiratory chain at the level of cytochromes b. Electron transport to nitrite and nitrous oxide involves c-type cytochromes. During electron transport from NADH to nitrate one phosphorylation site is passed, whereas two sites are passed during electron transport from NADH to oxygen, nitrite and nitrous oxide. The presentation of a respiratory chain as a linear array of electron carriers gives a… CONTINUE READING
