The electron transport chain is embedded in the inner membrane of the?
mitochondrion
Most of the chain is composed of?
protiens
Tightly bounded to these protiens are _____
prosthetic groups, nonprotien components
These prothetic groups ____, and ____ electrons
accept and donates
Electrons are transfered by ____ to the first molecule of the chain.
NADH
most of the remaining electron carriers are called?
cytochromes
The electron transport chain has several types of cytochromes. what is the last cytochrome of the chain that passes it's electron to oxygen? what does it form?
Cyt A3, water
Another source of electron transportaion is? what cycle is this a product of?
FADH, krebs cycle
How does the mitochondrion couple this electron transport and energy release to ATP synthesis?
chemiosmosis
What is chemiosmosis?
Chemiosmosis is an energy-coupling mechanism that uses engery stored in the form of H+ gradient across the membrane of the mitochondrion to drive cellular work.
