EC Number: 188.8.131.52
In Pathway: aerobic respiration (cytochrome c)
The direction shown, i.e. which substrates are on the left and right sides, is in accordance with the Enzyme Commission system.
Mass balance status: The left side is missing: charge: +4 H: 4
Enzyme Commission Primary Name: cytochrome-c oxidase
Enzyme Commission Synonyms: cytochrome oxidase, cytochrome a3, cytochrome aa3, Warburg's respiratory enzyme, indophenol oxidase, indophenolase, complex IV (mitochondrial electron transport), ferrocytochrome c oxidase, NADH cytochrome c oxidase
Enzyme Commission Summary:
A cytochrome of the a type containing copper. The reduction of O2 to water is accompanied by the extrusion of four protons from the intramitochondrial compartment. Several bacteria appear to contain analogous oxidases.
