Summary
NapC is essential for electron transfer from both ubiquinol and menaquinol to NapAB. [More information is available at EcoGene: EG12060]. The napC gene encodes a membrane-bound tetraheme cytochrome c protein, which passes electrons either from NapGH or directly from the quinone pool to NapB . [More information is available at EcoCyc: EG12060].
