electron transport chain
a sequence of electron carrier molecules (membrane proteins) that shuttle electrons during the redox reactions that release energy used to make ATP
the production of ATP using energy derived from the redox reactions of an electron transport chain
mode of ATP synthesis that occurs when an enzyme transfers a phosphate from a substrate molecule to ADP, rather than adding inorganic phosphate to ADP
an iron-containing protein that is a component of electron transport chains in the mitochodria and the membranes of prokaryotic cells
the potential energy stored in the form of an electrochemical gradient, generated by the pumping of hydrogen ions across a biological membrance
carry out only fermentation or anaerobic respiration (cannot survive in the prescence of oxygen)
