The electron transfer pathway involves a number of cytochromes which deliver electrons from the cytoplasmic membrane to the periplasmic membrane, where iron reduction occurs. The electron transfer (ET) between the membranes is carried out by the respiratory enzyme flavocytochrome c3 fumarate reductase (Fcc3), which contains four bis(histidine) hemes.

Hi my name is Jacqueline and I just wanted to drop you a quick note here instead of calling you. I came to your 20050627 SciDAC Straatsma, page and noticed you could have a lot more visitors. I have found that the key to running a successful website is making sure the visitors you are getting are interested in your subject matter. There is a company that you can get targeted visitors from and they let you try their service for free for 7 days. I managed to get over 300 targeted visitors to day to my site. Visit them here: Jacqueline
