Saccharomyces cerevisiaeis known to be able to adapt to the presence of the commonly used food preservative benzoic acid with a large energy expenditure. Some mechanisms for the adaptation process have been sug-gested, but its quantitative energetic and metabolic aspects have rarely been discussed. | ỊFEBS Journal Hexameric ring structure of a thermophilic archaeon NADH oxidase that produces predominantly H2O Baolei Jia1 Seong-Cheol Park1 1 Sangmin Lee1 Bang P.

Subsequent analyses showed that it is an FAD-containing protein with a subunit molecular mass of 49 kDa that exists as a hexamer with a native molecular mass of 300 kDa. A ring-shaped hexameric form was revealed by electron microscopic and image processing analyses. NOXtp catalyzed the oxidization of NADH and NADPH and predominantly converted O2 to H2O but not to H2O2 as in the case of most other NOX enzymess. To our knowledge this is the first example of a NOX that can produce H2O predominantly in a thermophilic organism. As an enzyme with two cysteine residues NOXtp .
