On the absence of correlation between cyanide-resistant respiration and cytochrome d content in bacteria.

Abstract

The regularity of appearance of cyanide-resistant respiration and cytochrome d in various bacteria as well as the relationship between the degree of resistance of respiration to cyanide and cytochrome d content was studied. Bacteria able to synthesize cyanide-resistant respiration were shown to appear during transition of culture to the stationary phase of growth caused by the exhaustion of carbon source. No regulatory of appearance of cytochrome d was observed. There is no correlation between the degree of resistance to cyanide and cytochrome d content. It was concluded that the cyanide-resistant respiration of bacteria and eukaryotic microorganisms may be associated with the functioning of a non-cytochrome nature oxidase.
