Electron transport and oxidative phosphorylation Energy released during oxidation of sugars, lipids and amino acids to CO 2 is stored in reduced cofactors , NADH and FADH 2 . During respiration, electrons are released from NADH and FADH 2 and transferred to O 2 (forming H 2 O) •T h e step-by-step transfer of electrons via an electron transport chain allows the large amount of energy produced by the transfer of electrons to O 2 to be released in small increments. •S e v e r a l electron transport chain components convert electron transport into a proton and voltage gradient across the inner mitochondrial membrane. •T h
