The Electron Transport System is the mechanism the cell uses to convert the energy in NADH and FADH 2 into ATP. Electrons flow along an energy gradient via carriers in one direction from a higher reducing potential (greater tendency to donate electrons) to a lower reducing potential (greater tendency to accept electrons). The ultimate acceptor is molecular oxygen.

-- The overall voltage drop from NADH E  = -(-0.32 V) to O = +0.82 V is = 1.14 V
Background image of page 6
-- This corresponds to a large free energy change of G  = - n F E  = -220 kJ/mole (n =2) -- Since ATP requires 30.5 kJ/mole to form from ADP, more than enough energy is available to synthesize 3 ATPs from the oxidation of NADH.
