Escherichia coli K-12 substr. MG1655 Compound Class: Membrane-Electron-Carriers

Superclasses: an acceptor a redox electron carrier

Summary:
Membrane-bound electron carriers are quinone or quinol type compounds involved in electron transfer processes. They will usually have their full-length, lipophilic isoprenoid tails attached, which is how they remain membrane-bound. Generally, they will freely diffuse within the membrane, thus allowing their load of 2 electrons and 2 protons to be transported between proteins, in a process that has been termed Q-loop.

Child Classes: an electron-transfer quinol (5) , an electron-transfer quinone (9)
