Experiments with particulate fractions of Acinetobacter sp. 1 revealed that coeuzyme $Q_{10}$ is not the physiolohical electron acceptor, and that cytochromes of a, b, c, and o types are found in cells grown with carbon monoxide (CO) as the sole source of carbon and energy. It was found that cytochromes of b and o types, but not the a and c types, are functional in CO oxidation. Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (phosphate) is not involved in CO oxidation.
