Namecytochrome c based oxygen reduction and quinone re-oxidation
DescriptionMitochondria and many aerobic bacteria utilize cytochrome c as a mobile electron carrier to couple the processes of oxygen reduction to water and quinone re-oxidation. These two processes occur on two separate complexes, cytochrome c oxidase and cytochrome c reductase, respectively. Both of these processes als o result in the pumping of protons across the cell membrane to generate the proton gradient necessary for ATP generation.
