Unformatted text preview: Readings: Chapter 19 in Lehninger Other Information and Things to Consider: Do the problems on electron transport at the end of Chapter 19, especially 4-8). Consider the spatial arrangements of the protein complexes within the mitochondria. Is the specific arrangement of the protein complexes important for the proper functioning of the electron transport chain? What is the effect of various inhibitors on the electron transport chain? That is, what happens to the redox state of all the electron transport chain components when the chain is blocked at various places? Pay particular attention to the experimental evidence gathered to decipher the order of the electron transport chain components, and to support the chemiosmotic hypothesis. Was this evidence easy to obtain and is it completely conclusive at this point?...
