ResumenCytochrome cM is a new c-class photosynthetic haem protein whose physiological role is still unknown. It has been proposed previously that cytochrome cM can replace cytochrome c6 and plastocyanin in transferring electrons between the two membrane complexes cytochrome b6–f and photosystem I in organisms growing under stress conditions. The experimental evidence herein provided allows us to discard such a hypothesis. We report a procedure to overexpress cytochrome cM from the cyanobacterium Synechocystis sp. PCC 6803 in Escherichia coli cells in mg quantities. This has allowed us to perform a comparative laser flash-induced kinetic analysis of photosystem I reduction by the three metalloproteins from Synechocystis. The bimolecular rate constant for the overall reaction is up to 100 times lower with cytochrome cM than with cytochrome c6 or plastocyanin. In addition, the redox potential value and surface electrostatic potential distribution of cytochrome cM are quite different from those of cytochrome c6 and plastocyanin. These findings strongly indicate that cytochrome cM cannot be recognised by and interact with the same redox partners as the other two metalloproteins.
