Cytochrome C is a soluble heme protein. Cytochrome C consists a chain of about 100 amino acids. It is an electron transfer mitochondrial protein, which transfers electrons between Coenzyme Q-Cytochrome C reductase and Cytochrome C oxidase in the electron transport chain. Cyt C is a reddish or red brown crystalline powder purified from bovine, porcine or equine hearts.
