Abstract

Most respiratory oxidases of eukaryotic and prokaryotic organisms are members of a superfamily of enzymes that couple the redox energy available from the reduction of molecular oxygen to the mechanism of pumping protons across the membrane. The recent applications of site-directed mutagenesis and of a variety of spectroscopic techniques have allowed major advances in our understanding of the structure and function of these proteins.
