Abstract

A soluble thiosulphate-oxidizing multi-enzyme system, precipitated from a crude cell extract of A2 with ammonium sulphate, has been resolved into four essential components by DEAE-Sepharose chromatography, gel filtration of Sephadex G-100 and G-200, hydrophobic interaction chromatography on phenyl-Sepharose and preparative isoelectric focusing. Oxidation of thiosulphate to sulphate coupled to the reduction of horse-heart cytochrome as electron acceptor was catalysed by two colourless proteins (enzyme A: , 16000; and enzyme B: , 64000). cytochrome ( , 32000) and cytochrome ( , 300000). Enzymes A and B were purified 110- and 280-fold, respectively. Sulphite: cytochrome oxidoreductase was also purified 660-fold. The mechanism of action of the system is discussed.
