Understanding the origin and evolution of cellular processes is fundamental to understand how biological activity has shaped the history of our planet. Among these, aerobic respiration is probably one of the most debated. We have applied a phylogenomics approach to investigate the origin and evolution of dioxygen reductases (O(2)Red), the key enzymes of aerobic respiratory chains. The distribution and phylogenetic analysis of the four types of O(2)Red (Cyt-bd and the A, B, and C families of… CONTINUE READING
