The oxidase test is performed using a reducing agent to detect bacteria’s ability to produce cytochrome c oxidase, an enzyme in the electron transport chain. The reducing agent (TMPD)) changes or produces a purple color as it become oxidized. Pseudomoonas aeruginosa: pruple color formed indicating the presence of cytochrome c oxidase on the oxidase strip impregnated with TMPD. Escherichia coli: no purple color formed indicating there is no cytochrome c oxidase.

Our study reports for the first time the role of cytochrome c oxidase as a prognostic marker in GBM patients’ tumor tissues,” said Corinne Griguer, Ph.D., associate professor in the Division of Neurosurgery within the UAB School of Medicine and study leader. “High CcO activity comes with a 25-fold increase in risk of death.”

Cytochrome C Oxidase Activity of Various Tissues of the American Cockroach, Periplaneta americana (L.)

Title Cytochrome C Oxidase Activity of Various Tissues of the American Cockroach, Periplaneta americana (L.) Author Sacktor, Bertram and Bodenstein, Dietrich Bi

Oxidase reaction. OX+ normally means that the bacterium contains cytochrome c oxidase and can therefore utilize oxygen for energy production with an electron transfer chain. OX- normally means that the bacterium does not contain cytochrome c oxidase and therefore either cannot utilize oxygen for energy production with an electron transfer chain or employs a different cytochrome for transferring electrons to oxygen. Reagent: Oxidase reagent or N,N,N',N'-tetramethyl-p-phenylendiamine…
