Abstract

Cytochrome oxidase complex has been isolated and purified from sea urchin mitochondrial inner membranes. The complex exhibited a discrete number of bands in PAGE and a 17 kDa band was recognized by an anti-human subunit IV antibody. No bands were recognized by an anti-yeast hsp60 antibody and an anti-sea urchin β ATPase subunit.
