Abstract

A crude thiosulphate-oxidizing extract of A2 has been resolved by ammonium sulphate fractionation and DEAE-Sepharose CL-6B chromatography into fractions containing several components necessary for thiosulphate oxidation and reduction of cytochrome These components include two distinct -type cytochromes, sulphite: cytochrome oxidoreductase, rhodanese and enzymes probably responsible for thiosulphate cleavage and sulphane-sulphur oxidation. The complete cytochrome -dependent thiosulphate-oxidizing system could be reconstituted by mixing selected fractions from the column chromatography.
