- 1 - Electron Transport Chain/Oxidative Phosphorylation/Chemiosmosis Electron Transport Chain – because electrons from NADH and FADH 2 get passed from protein complex to protein complex until picked up by oxygen (which is the final electron acceptor) Oxidative Phosphorylation – because ADP is phosphorylated into ATP due to the oxidation (loss of electrons) of the electron carrying cofactors NADH and FADH 2 Chemiosmosis – because the ATP is synthesized because of the osmosis (misnomer) of protons using the energy of the electrochemical (chemical because of the increased conc. of hydrogen ions; electro because of the increased positive charge) gradient and the ATP synthase enzyme How Cofactors Change to ATP - All the NADH except those produced in the cytoplasm of liver, heart and kidney cells produce 3 ATP . - The NADH produced in the matrix release their electrons at the NADH dehydrogenase complex . From there, the electrons get passed on by coenzyme Q
