Subunit composition of NADH dehydrogenase (quinone) = [subunit of NADH dehydrogenase (quinone)]2
This NADH dehydrogenase enzyme is thought to compete with the one-electron reduction pathway of quinones, which is potentially toxic as it generates superoxide radicals and hydrogen peroxide [Hayashi90].
The intracellular level of this enzyme is increased 23-fold by growth in the presence of 0.3 mM menadione, but not paraquat [Hayashi90]. The critical inductive signal is a 2-alkyl-1.4-quinone structure with an unsubstitued or Br-substituted C-3 [Unemoto92].
Molecular Weight of Polypeptide: 24.0 kD (experimental) [Hayashi90]
