  • First, it employs a large family of enzymes, called cytochromes, to turn specific toxins into general free radicals—this is known as Phase I liver detox.

    The Source

  • Woese then hazarded that such chimerism probably would not prove a significant problem, from the example provided by congruent alpha-proteobacterial trees based on cytochromes c and rRNA, from the general robustness of the rRNA phylogeny, and from its ability to predict certain domain-level phenotypic characters (for instance, the differences in bacterial and archaeal cell envelopes, transcription, and translation).

    A Disclaimer for Behe?

  • I can rattle on about cytochromes, about chemiosmotic potentials and ATP synthase.

  • I didn't read the article but I assume it is of interest to know that methanogens with cytochromes an enzyme that transports electrons - kinda like hincapie giving armstrong a water bottle and some goo can make more methane gas than methanogens without cytochromes.

  • And methanogens with cytochromes have considerably higher growth yields and threshold concentrations for H2 than methanogens without cytochromes.

  • In the discussion, the authors present additional evidence that supports their finding, including, but not limited to: (a) the inability to detect cytochromes within the methanogens; (b) the fact that the cell walls of methanogens do not contain peptidoglycan; (c) the 23S rRNA sequence is also divergent from typical bacteria.
