Enzyme Information
Quinol--cytochrome-c reductase.
based on mapping to UniProt Q5ZLR5
Quinol + 2 ferricytochrome c = quinone + 2 ferrocytochrome c + 2 H(+).
-!- The enzyme, often referred to as the cytochrome bc1 complex or complex III, is the third complex in the electron transport chain. -!- It is present in the mitochondria of all aerobic eukaryotes and in the inner membranes of most bacteria. -!- The mammalian enzyme contains cytochromes b-562, b-566 and C(1), and a 2-iron ferredoxin. -!- Depending on the organism and physiological conditions, the enzyme extrudes either two or four protons from the cytoplasmic to the non- cytoplasmic compartment (cf.

Famoxadone and related inhibitors bind like methoxy acrylate inhibitors in the Qo site of the BC1 compl and fix the rieske iron-sulfur protein in a positio close to but distinct from that seen with stigmatellin and other "DISTAL" Qo inhibitors.
