Fe2+ + e–) – hydrogen atom transfer (H+ + e–) – hydride ion transfer (H:–) Membrane-bound electron carrier molecules • there are three classes of electron transfer agents used after the nicotinamide and flavin cofactors release their electrons – ubiquinone (also known as: coenzyme Q, or Q), a lipidsoluble organic compound – cytochromes, proteins with iron-containing prosthetic groups – iron-sulfur proteins, which contain Fe-S centers • overall electron flow: – NADH/succinate ! flavoproteins/ubiquinone/cytochromes/Fe-S proteins !

In a vacuum, the rate decreases by a factor of 10 for every increase of 0.8 Å. In proteins, the rate decreases more gradually, by a factor of 10 for every increase of 1.7 Å. This rate is only an approximation and depends on protein sequence, protein structure, medium, and other factors. • The rate of an electron-transfer reaction at first increase as the driving force for the reaction increases. The rate reaches a maximum and then decreases at very large driving forces.
