UniProt functional annotation for P68530

UniProt code: P68530.

Organism: Bos taurus (Bovine).
Taxonomy: Eukaryota; Metazoa; Chordata; Craniata; Vertebrata; Euteleostomi; Mammalia; Eutheria; Laurasiatheria; Cetartiodactyla; Ruminantia; Pecora; Bovidae; Bovinae; Bos.
 
Function: Cytochrome c oxidase is the component of the respiratory chain that catalyzes the reduction of oxygen to water. Subunits 1- 3 form the functional core of the enzyme complex. Subunit 2 transfers the electrons from cytochrome c via its binuclear copper A center to the bimetallic center of the catalytic subunit 1.
 
Cofactor: Name=Cu cation; Xref=ChEBI:CHEBI:23378; Note=Binds a copper A center.;
Subcellular location: Mitochondrion inner membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein.
Similarity: Belongs to the cytochrome c oxidase subunit 2 family. {ECO:0000305}.
