Flavin Modification and Redox Tuning in the Bifurcating Electron Transfer Flavoprotein from Rhodopseudomonas palustris

Nishya Mohamed Raseek
Electron bifurcation is considered as a third fundamental mode of energy conservation mechanism in addition to two well-known mechanisms, substrate level phosphorylation and Oxidative phosphorylation, in electron bifurcation endergonic and exergonic redox reactions are coupled. The newly discovered flavin based electron bifurcation in electron transfer flavoproteins (ETFs) helps to reduce low potential ferredoxin, which provides electrons to drive biologically demanding reactions such as atmospheric dinitrogen fixation in diazotroph and methane production in methanogens.
