Namesingle complex oxygen reduction and quinone re-oxidation
DescriptionMany aerobic bacteria have complexes for the reduction of oxygen that are independent of cytochrome c (as found in mitochondria). These complexes carry out the conversion of oxygen to water, the oxidation of reduced quinones and the pumping of protons to generate the proton gradient for ATP generateion. Examples include the cytochrome bd complex and the cytochrome bo complex.
