How does an electron transport chain occur?

The Electron transport chain In cellular respiration Produces water (H2O). , Reduce available oxygen (O2)

The following equation is:


+ 4 e- + O2

– 2H2O

Also, accepting electrons

From the electron carriers NADH And FADH2 The oxidizing agents

The following equations can be used to regenerate NAD+ or FAD:

NADH – NAD+ + H+

+ 2 e-

FADH2 – FAD + 2H+

+ 2 e-

Free Energy

The electron transport chain can be used to transport the materials. Hydrogen ions (H+). All across the Crista membrane In the mitochondrion From the matrix To the inner membrane space They build up, generating the Potential energy An Electrochemical gradient Used to phosphorylate ADP To ATP In chemiosmosi Hydrogen ions (H+), which pass through the s, are known as enzyme ATP synthase This is embedded in the crista skin membrane. This is known as Oxidative phosphorylation

Because of this, the oxygen (O2) must be reduced in order to release the energy that drives the process.

Because of the strong electronegativity

It is the most important element of oxygen oxidizing agent Final electron acceptor

Aerobic respiration is a term used to describe the electron transport chain.

I will need to discuss photosynthetic electronic transport chains.

Used in photosynthesis

You can always come back later.
