Abstract

The membrane-bound electron-transfer chain components of both phototrophically and chemotrophically grown Chloroflexus aurantiacus have been characterized. Membranes isolated from chemotrophically grown Chloroflexus have been shown to contain at least three c-type cytochromes and at least three b-type cytochromes. In addition, these cells appear to lack a photochemical reaction center and the high potential (Em = +260 mV) cytochrome c-554 that serves as the immediate donor to the reaction center in phototrophically grown Chloroflexus. Phototrophically grown cells contain a CO-binding c-type cytochrome, apparently absent in the chemotrophically grown cells. However, a different CO-binding component, which may function as the terminal oxidase, is present in chemotrophically grown cells.
