Abstract

A ‘soluble’ fraction from anaerobically grown contains a haemoprotein with spectral properties, notably an -band in the reduced form at 585 to 595 nm, similar to cytochrome . Haem extraction of either the soluble preparation or whole cells yields haem , but not haem . In view of this, and the spectral similarities of the -like component to well-known high-spin haem proteins, we propose that the name ‘haemoprotein -590’ be used to describe this substance and that consideration be given to the applicability of the name to certain other cytochrome -like pigments in bacteria.
