Oxidation of membrane-bound quinol molecules is a central step in the respiratory electron transport chains used by biological cells to generate ATP by oxidative phosphorylation. A novel family of cytochrome c quinol dehydrogenases that play an important role in bacterial respiratory chains was recognised in recent years. Here, we describe the first structure of a cytochrome from this family, NrfH from Desulfovibrio vulgaris, which forms a stable complex with its electron partner, the… CONTINUE READING
