Reaction: succinate + ubiquinone = fumarate + ubiquinol

Other name(s): succinic dehydrogenase; complex II; menaquinol: fumarate oxidoreductase; fumarate reductase complex (i.e. FRD, involved in anaerobic respiration, repressed in aerobic respiration); succinate dehydrogenase complex (i. e. SDH, involved in aerobic respiration, repressed in anaerobic respiration)
Systematic name: succinate:ubiquinone oxidoreductase
Comments: A flavoprotein (FAD) containing iron-sulfur centres. The complex, present in mitochondria, can be degraded to form EC 184.108.40.206 succinate dehydrogenase, which no longer reacts with ubiquinone.
