In vitro studies on cytochrome c biogenesis

Abstract:

C-type cytochromes are essential for almost all organisms and are mainly involved in electron transport; they are characterised by the covalent attachment of heme to protein through two thioether bonds to a CXXCH peptide motif.

This thesis describes the development of in vitro systems to establish chemical aspects of the process of cytochrome c maturation. Initially, the uncatalysed reaction of heme and apocytochrome c from Hydrogenobacter th...
