Name  Quinol oxidase subunit III Short Name  QoxC
Type  Family Description  This entry encodes subunit III of the aa3-type quinone oxidase (QoxC), one of several bacterial terminal oxidases []. This complex couples oxidation of reduced quinones to the reduction of molecular oxygen to water, and the pumping of protons to form the proton gradient utilised for ATP production. aa3-type oxidases contain two haem A cofactors as well as copper atoms at the active site.
