Proton transfer and nitric oxide reduction in heme-copper oxidases
01/01/2016 - 31/12/2019

Bacterial NO-reductases (NOR) are integral membrane proteins that reduce the toxic gas nitric oxide (NO) to dinitrous oxide (N2O) (2NO+2e-+2H+->N2O+H2O). NORs are divergent members of the super-family of oxygen-reducing, proton pumping, heme-copper oxidases (HCuOs), to which t...


NO-reducing heme-copper oxidases
01/01/2012 - 31/12/2014
Bacterial denitrification is a crucial part of the nitrogen cycle in nature. The bacterial nitric oxide reductases (NOR) are part of the denitrification pathway, reducing nitric oxide (NO) to nitrous oxide (N2O). Sequence alignments have shown that NORs belong to the super-family...

Structure and function of NO-reducing heme-copper oxidases
01/01/2009 - 31/12/2011
Bacterial NO-reductases (NOR) are membrane proteins that reduce the toxic gas nitric oxide (NO) to dinitrous oxide (N2O) (2NO+2e-+2H+-->N2O+H2O). This reaction is a step in denitrification, an anaerobic process where nitrate (NO3-) is reduced stepwise to dinitrogen gas. NOR is...

Structure and Function of bacterial NO-reductases and cbb3-type oxidases
01/01/2007 - 31/12/2009
Bacterial NO-reductases (NOR) are membrane proteins that reduce the toxic gas nitric oxide (NO) to dinitrous oxide (N2O) (2NO+2e-+2H+-->N2O+H2O). This reaction is a step in denitrification, a process in which nitrate (NO3-) is used as the terminal electron acceptor and reduced...

Brzezinski, Peter

Prof. Peter Brzezinski was recruited to the Department of Biochemistry and Biophysics in 1998. Peter obtained a Ph.D in Physics at CTH in 1989 and after that he moved to UC San Diego where he developed techniques for studies of photosynthetic systems. In 1991 he became Assista...
