Electron transfer processes are essential mechanisms in many biochemical pathways like photosynthesis and respiration in general. Among the components of the different electron flow systems, a number of monoheme c-type cytochromes are well characterized, both in terms of sequence and of high-resolution three-dimensional structures.
