Listing the "Pro-Apoptotic Stimuli" (other than an increase in Ca) would be helpful in understanding the biochemical path to Cyt C release.
Cytochrome c in evolutionary analysis?
Anyone have any objection to adding a section on the use of cytochrome c in evolutionary and taxonomic analysis? Given the importance of the technique it is arguably relevant to this article. It would also be useful to rebut some of the "refutations of Darwinism" arguments based on cytochrome c analysis. MrG 126.96.36.199 (talk) 13:55, 18 December 2007 (UTC)

do you have any futher information about the catalytic activity as hydroxylation, aromatic oxidation etc.?
Do you know, how to determine spectrofotometrically the oxidation state of cyt c?
Hi, I think that this section must be looked at for peer reviewed truth validation. Thank you!
Role in low level laser therapy (LLLT) / Photobiomodulation Cytochrome c is also suspected to be the functional complex in so called LLLT: Low-level laser therapy. In LLLT, red light and some near infra-red wavelengths penetrate tissue in order to increase cellular regeneration. Light of this wavelength appears capable of increasing activity of cytochrome c, thus increasing metabolic activity and freeing up more energy for the cells to repair the tissue. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 19:05, 22 December 2009 (UTC)
- Feel free to be bold and do so; you should probably also add a sentence briefly explaining the meaning of the term phylogenetics to the section though, as the majority of readers are likely to not be familiar with the term. GiftigerWunsch [TALK] 14:07, 24 August 2010 (UTC)
Could someone find a good reference for the molecular weight of cytochrome c. The number 12,000 daltons is given, but no source is provided. I can't site Wikipedia in a paper. — Preceding unsigned comment added by ND Eowyn (talk • contribs) 06:01, 27 November 2012 (UTC)
