Subsystem: Terminal cytochrome C oxidases
This subsystem's description is:
In many bacteria the electron transport is highly diversified and there is more than one terminal respiratory oxidase and different combinations of these complexes can present in one organism (for a recent review, see J. Bacteriol..2001; 183: 6151-6498). Terminal cytochrome oxidases exchange electrons either with the quinione pool or directly with cytochromes, depending on their redox potential.
The best-characterized terminal oxidases are those that are homologous to the aa3-type cytochrome c oxidases of mitochondria. The latter and bb3 (alternative) types of terminal oxidases are included in the Subsystem ‘Terminal cytochrome c oxidases’ and are excluded from from this subsystem arbitrary because of the high volume of functional roles in both subsystem
