New study sheds light on evolutionary origin of oxygen-based cellular respiration
23-January-2012

Researchers at the RIKEN SPring-8 Center have clarified the crystal structure of quinol dependent nitric oxide reductase, a bacterial enzyme that offers clues on the origins of our earliest oxygen-breathing ancestors. The findings provide key insights into the production of nitrogen oxide, a greenhouse gas hundreds of times more potent than C02.
