"A surprise of the crystal structure is an additional, unique heme x
closely linked to heme bn... Heme x is covalently
linked to the protein by a single thioether bond to invariant Cys35 in helix A
of cytochrome b6. Cys35 is not part of a signature sequence
characteristic of c-type cytochromes, in which the heme has thioether bonds to
two cysteines and an orthogonal His ligand. The Fe of heme x is not
coordinated by protein side chains but by a small molecule assigned as water."

Finally, a bit of useful news from Nature!
"Here we show that consumption of plain, dark chocolate results in an increase in both the total antioxidant
capacity and the (-)epicatechin content of blood plasma, but that these effects are markedly reduced when the
chocolate is consumed with milk or if milk is incorporated as milk chocolate."
