The amino acid sequence of cytochrome c' from Alcaligenes sp. N.C.I.B. 11015

The amino acid sequence of cytochrome c' from Alcaligenes sp. N.C.I.B. 11015

Biochemical Journal 135(4): 751-758

The amino acid sequence of the cytochrome c' from Alcaligenes sp. N.C.I.B. 11015 (Iwasaki's ;Pseudomonas denitrificans') has been determined. This organism is the only non-photosynthetic bacterium in which the protein has been found. The protein consists of a single polypeptide chain of 127 residues, with a single haem covalently attached to two cysteines. Unlike normal cytochromes c, the haem attachment site is very close to the C-terminus. The amino acid sequence around the haem attachment site is very similar to that of Chromatium vinosum D cytochrome c'. Detailed evidence for the amino acid sequence of the protein has been deposited as Supplementary Publication SUP 50022 at the British Library (Lending Division), (formerly the National Lending Library for Science and Technology), Boston Spa, Yorks. LS23 7BQ, U.K., from whom copies may be obtained on the terms given in Biochem. J. (1973) 131, 5.
