Ubiquinol: cytochrome c reductase was isolated from Neurospora mitochondria as a protein-detergent complex and dissociated by mild salt treatment. Three parts were obtained and characterized. Firstly, a complex containing the subunits III (cytochrome b), IV (cytochrome c1), VI, VII, VIII and IX; secondly, a complex containing the subunits I and II; and thirdly, the single subunit V (iron-sulphur subunit). Membrane crystals were prepared from the cytochrome bc1 subunit complex and by combining tilted electron microscopic views of the crystals, a low-resolution three-dimensional structure was calculated. This structure was compared to that of the whole cytochrome reductase (previously determined by electron microscopy of membrane crystals). Protein density absent from the structure of the subunit complex was then attributed to the missing subunits according to their size and shape and their association with the phospholipid bilayer.
