The rate of the reduction of ferricytochrome c at alkaline pH depends on the composition of the buffer. In glycine-NaOH buffer the reduction is accompanied by the formation of one mole of glyoxylic acid per two moles of cytochrome c reduced. The rates of reduction in glycyl-glycine, triglycine and DL-alanine-NaOH buffers are considerably slower, and in carbonate and Tris are negligible.
