PMID:  6330096     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Purified cytochrome b561 from bovine adrenal medulla chromaffin vesicles has been reconstituted into phosphatidylcholine vesicles by a detergent-dialysis method. When the reconstituted cytochrome-containing vesicles were preloaded with ascorbic acid and cytochrome c was added to the external medium, the internal ascorbic acid was able to reduce the external cytochrome c. This reduction of cytochrome c was dependent on the presence of cytochrome b561 in the membrane and was not due to leakage of ascorbate from the vesicles. These results demonstrate that cytochrome b561 catalyzes a transmembrane electron transfer.
