Whitney Barter Chapter 5 – CT 1, 5 2/11/08 1. Write your own definition of chemiosmotic mechanism of ATP generation. On Figure 5.16, mark the following using the appropriate letter: a. The acidic side of the membrane b. The side with a positive electrical charge c. Potential energy d. Kinetic energy The chemiosmotic mechanism is where ATP is generated via a proton gradient across the plasma membrane. The proton gradient acts as a battery and stores energy that can be utilized for the production of ATP 5. Compare and contrast carbohydrate catabolism and energy production in the
