Electron transport, chemiosmotic ATP production, fermentation In bacteria capable of respiration, the electrons carried by NADH and FADH 2 can be used for further ATP synthesis via oxidative phosphorylation - Respiratory electron transport chains consist of a series of membrane-bound carrier molecules that cycle between reduced and oxidized states (Tortora et al., Figure 5.13) = Among the carrier molecules are flavoproteins and cytochromes = Some of the carriers pick up protons from the cytoplasm when they are reduced and release them to the outside of the membrane when they are oxidized; this the way that the characteristic proton gradient is produced - In the final step of electron transport, electrons are transferred to a terminal electron acceptor = In aerobic respiration, this terminal electron acceptor is O 2 = In anaerobic respiration, this terminal electron acceptor may be nitrate or sulfate - Because electron transport produces ATP through oxidative phosphorylation, we can look at the electroncarrying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
