The amino acid sequence of cytochrome c' from the purple sulphur bacterium Chromatium vinosum.

An amino acid sequence is proposed for the cytochrome c' from the photosynthetic purple sulphur bacterium Chromatium vinosum strain D. It is single polypeptide chain of 131 residues, with haem-attachment cysteine residues at positions 121 and 124. The results discredit an earlier report [Dus, Bartsch & Kamen (1962) J. Biol. Chem 237, 3083--3093] of a di-haem peptide sequence from this protein. The sequence belongs to the same class as the published Alcaligenes and Rhodospirillum rubrum cytochrome c' squences, but the resemblance is not close. Detailed evidence for the amino acid sequence of the protein has been deposited as Supplementary Publication SUP 50,093 (15 pp.) at the British Library Lending Division, Boston Spa, Wetherby, West Yorkshire LS23 7BQ, U.K., from whom copies may be obtained on the terms given in Biochem. J. (1978) 169, 5.[1]
