Abstract

The membranebound tricarboxylic acid cycle enzyme succinate dehydrogenase (SDH) is associated with a b-type cytochrome in many organisms. 1,2 The cytochrome b is often found in stoichiometric amounts in isolated succinate-ubiquinone oxidoreductase (complex II) from bovine heart,3 Neurospora crassa,4 Ascaris suum 5 and plant6 mitochondria as well as in SDH complexes isolated from both Gram-negative and Gram-positive8,9 bacteria whereas yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) apparently lacks this type of cytochrome.10
