The o-type oxidase from the methanol-grown obligate methylotroph Methylobacillus flagellatus KT has been purified to homogeneity. The complex is composed of four subunits (57, 40, 35 and 30 kDa). It contains six haems (4C:1B:1O) and one copper atom per molecule. It is proposed that the haem O-CuB binuclear centre and a low-spin haem B are located in subunit I (57 kDa), two haems C reside in the cytochrome c homodimer (35 kDa), two haems C belong to the dihaem cytochrome c (30 kDa). The presented data provide evidence that cytochrome cbo is a novel representative of the haem-copper oxidase superfamily. © 2001 Published by Elsevier Science B.V. on behalf of the Federation of European Biochemical Societies.
