Barcoding animal life: cytochrome c oxidase
subunit 1 divergences among closely related species.
Maximum-likelihood phylogenetic trees of cytochrome C oxidase
subunit 1 (cox1) gene (656-bp) sequences from African great apes and human Plasmodium spp.
Activity of cytochrome C oxidase
in MII oocytes (n=10 in each group) were determined with the method described by Burstone et al (47).

in the regulation of cell destiny: respiration, apoptosis, and human disease," Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology, vol.
In this study, 34 pockets were determined for T1 (preprotein translocase subunit SecD) while T2 (ccoN:cbb3-type cytochrome c oxidase
subunit I) had only seven pockets.
When the amount of copper supplied increased, the cells exhibit higher cytochrome c oxidase
activities and produce more phenolic compounds, in spite of decreasing amount of total mitochondrial proteins and a lesser number of visible bands visualized from SDS-PAGE analysis.
Here, we demonstrate that the protective effect of 670 nm LED on RF/6A cells results from the stimulation of cellular events associated with the enhancement of cytochrome C oxidase
activity, further improves oxidative metabolism of mitochondria, and provides protection against hypoxic damage.
Diminished cytochrome c oxidase
activity has been described in AD postmortem cerebral cortex [8-11] and platelets .
Mitochondrial (mt) DNA content, citrate synthase activity, transcript levels of some nuclear- and mitochondrial-coded genes (cytochrome c oxidase
subunit IV [COX-IV], 16S rRNA, COX-I) and of some factors involved in the mitochondrial biogenesis signaling pathway (peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma [PPARgamma] coactivator-1alpha [PGC-1alpha], mitochondrial transcription factor A mitochondrial [TFAM], mitochondrial transcription factor 2B [TFB2]), as well as the protein content of PGC-1alpha were determined.
Methods: Phylogenetic inference calculations were based on partial mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase
subunit I (COX 1), 16S ribosomal RNA and nuclear histone subunit 3 (H3) genes using maximum likelihood, maximum parsimony and Bayesian approaches.
Cyanide ion released by urease action can produce cytochrome C oxidase
inhibition and mitochondrial dysfunction.
In addition to general updating, highlights of the sixth edition include: a new section on metal complexes of chlorine, chlorophylls, phthalocyanines, and bacteriochloryphylls; vibrational spectra of novel coordination compounds prepared in inert gas matrices; and vibrational spectra of cytochrome c oxidase
and blue copper proteins.
