Unformatted text preview: is NAD + . Electrons are passed through an electron transport chain to form ATP by chemiosmosis, a process sometimes called oxidative phosphorylation or electron transport phosphorylation. Not all of the ATP produced during cell respiration is by chemiosmosis. Some ATP is also synthesized by a direct transfer of phosphate from a substrate molecule to ADP. This process is called substrate-level phosphorylation. We will discuss this more when we do the details of the cell respiration pathways....
