Abstract

Among the three energy transducing site of the eukaryotic mitochondrial respiratory chain (1-3) the NADH-Q oxidoreductase is the most complex and the least understood. In order to search for a simpler model system, we have examined Site I from some selected bacteria, namely,Paracoccus denitrificans and Thermus thermophilus HB-8(4).
