Electron Transport Chain

Electron Transport Chain Definition The Electron Transport System also called the Electron Transport Chain, is a chain of reactions that converts redox energy available from oxidation of NADH and FADH2, into proton-motive force which is used to synthesize ATP through conformational changes in the ATP synthase complex through a process called oxidative phosphorylation. Oxidative phosphorylation is the last step of cellular respiration. This stage consists of a series of electron transfer from organic compounds to oxygen while simultaneously releasing energy … Read more
