  1. 1. Role of respiratory supercomplexes : Electronic connection between complexes III and IV

    Författare :Agnes Moe; Peter Brzezinski; James A. Letts; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; electron transfer; cytochrome c oxidase; cytochrome bc1; respiratory supercomplex; bioenergetics; membrane protein; biokemi; Biochemistry;

    Sammanfattning : In the final step of cellular respiration, electrons are transferred through the respiratory chain to reduce molecular oxygen to water. The energy released in this chain is used to maintain a proton electrochemical gradient across the cell membrane, which is used, for example, by the ATP synthase to produce ATP. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Mechanistic Insights in the Biogenesis and Function of the Respiratory Chain

    Författare :Hannah Dawitz; Martin Ott; Cristina Ugalde; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; respiratory chain; bc1 complex; cytochrome c oxidase; Cbp3; Rcf1; Rcf2; respiratory supercomplexes; biogenesis; mitochondria; Saccharomyces cerevisiae; Biochemistry; biokemi;

    Sammanfattning : Mitochondria fulfill a plethora of functions, including harboring metabolic pathways and converting energy stored in metabolites into ATP, the common energy source of the cell. This last function is performed by the oxidative phosphorylation system, consisting of the respiratory chain and the ATP synthase. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Wiring Components of the Respiratory Chain : Modulation of the Respiratory Chain in Yeast and Bacteria

    Författare :Jacob Schäfer; Peter Brzezinski; Dennis Winge; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Cytochrome c oxidase; Electron transfer; Membrane protein; Ligand; Kinetics; Mechanism; Rcf1; Cytochrome c; Respiratory supercomplex; Cryo-electron microscopy; Biochemistry; biokemi;

    Sammanfattning : The enzyme complexes of the respiratory chain are organized in supramolecular assemblies, so-called respiratory supercomplexes. In the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae, these supercomplexes consist of two copies of complex III (bc1 complex) and one or two copies of complex IV (cytochrome c oxidase, CytcO). LÄS MER

  4. 4. Significance of mitochondrial ultrastructure for bioenergetics

    Författare :Alexandra Toth; Martin Ott; Vladimir Gogvadze; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; bioenergetics; mitochondrial ultrastructure; respiratory chain; Saccharomyces cereviciae; ATP synthase; apoptosis; cytochrome c; supercomplexes; Biochemistry; biokemi;

    Sammanfattning : Mitochondria are the site where most of the energy from food is converted into adenosine triphosphate (ATP). This process is taking place at the inner membrane (IM) of mitochondria, and is called oxidative phosphorylation, and results in the establishment of a proton motive force (pmf). LÄS MER

  5. 5. Structural characterisation of mitochondrial macromolecular complexes using cryo-EM : Mitoribosome biogenesis and respiratory chain supercomplex

    Författare :Sorbhi Rathore; Martin Ott; Daniel Wilson; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Mitochondria; mitoribosome biogenesis; mitoribosome assembly factors; yeast respiratory supercomplexes; single particle electron cryo-microscopy; cryo-EM sample preparation; Biochemistry; biokemi;

    Sammanfattning : Mitochondria, popularly known as powerhouse of the cell, contain specialised mitoribosomes that synthesise essential membrane proteins. These essential proteins are required to form enzyme complexes, which carry out the process of oxidative phosphorylation (OXPHOS). LÄS MER
