The addition of a drug (DCCD) to mitochondria markedly decreases both the rate of electron transfer from NADH to O2 and the rate of ATP formation. The subsequent addition of 2,4-dinitrophenol leads to an increase in the rate of electron transfer without changing the rate of ATP formation. What does DCCD likely inhibit?
DCCD (N,N-Dicyclohexylcarbodiimide) likely inhibits the ATP Synthase enzyme. This enzyme is mainly... View the full answer
