Nitrocytochrome c. I. Structure and Enzymic Properties

Mordechai Sokolovsky, Irit Aviram, Abel Schejter

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Cytochrome c was nitrated with tetranitromethane at pH 8.0. A modified enzyme nitrated specifically at the tyrosyl residue in position 67 was purified. This nitrocytochrome c was found to be unable to restore the respiratory function of cytochrome c depleted mitochondria. In the presence of cyanide, which forms a complex with cytochrome c, the described nitration did not take place.
