Unformatted text preview: phosphate ion, powered by protons diffusing through ATP synthase) rather than substrate-level phosphorylation. Does that make sense? Q3: I have a question about learning objective 2-13, on handout 6. It says to name 2 examples we've studied of energy coupling in cells using ATP phosphorylation of a protein. How specific do we need to be? Would simply stating transport work and mechanical word be acceptable or do we need to be more specific (a proton pump, and motor protein moving along microtubule of the cytoskeleton)? A: Your answers are all correct, but it's good to be as specific as possible (e.g., proton pump, sodium-potassium pump, microtubule motor protein, etc). Also, I have posted under Course Documents:-the homework questions that were due Oct 11-Aimee's worksheet from September 28 discussion sections (which had to be canceled when the University closed)...
