<jats:p>The respiratory system of the fastidious β-proteobacterium Eikenella corrodens grown with limited oxygen was studied. Membranes showed the highest oxidase activity with ascorbate plus N,N,N',N'-tetramethyl-p-phenyl enediamine (TMPD) or succinate and the lowest activity with NADH and formate. The presence of a bc<jats:sub>1</jats:sub>-type complex was suggested by the inhibition exerted by 2-heptyl-4-hydroxyquinoline-N-oxide (HOQNO), myxothiazol, and antimycin A on respiration with succinate and by the effect of the latter two inhibitors on the succinate-reduced difference spectra. Respiration with succinate or ascorbate&#x96;TMPD was abolished by low KCN...
