The proportion of Met80-sulfoxide dictates peroxidase activity of human cytochrome c

The peroxidase activity of cytochrome c is proposed to contribute to apoptosis by peroxidation of cardiolipin in the mitochondrial inner membrane. However, cytochrome c heme is hexa-coordinate with a methionine (Met80) on the distal side, stopping it from acting as an efficient peroxidase. The first naturally occur
