The cbb3 oxidases are an ancient innovation of the domain bacteria.


A survey of genomes for the presence of gene clusters related to cbb(3) oxidases detected bona fide members of the family in almost all phyla of the domain Bacteria. No archaeal representatives were found. The subunit composition was seen to vary substantially between clades observed on the phylogenetic tree of the catalytic subunit CcoN. The protein diade… (More)
