Unformatted text preview: Electron transport: its function, the nature of the electron carriers, the relation between the reducing potential of the intermediates and the amount of free energy available, and the mechanism of the final step, the reduction of oxygen. You should be able to link movement of electrons with establishment of the proton gradient. Chemiosmotic model: Its purposes, the necessary role of mitochondrial structure, the components, and how the proton gradient is able to generate ATP. In addition, you should be able to describe the effects of uncoupling electron transport from ATP synthesis and ways this can be accomplished. 5 Unit 1 Outline: I. Overview (chapter 1) A.
