How does the mitochondrion couple the fall of the electrons in the electron transport chain to ATP synthesis?© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com October 5, 2022, 6:54 pm ad1c9bdddf
The answer is a mechanism called chemiosmosis.
- In the electron transport chain, the electrons move from molecule to molecule until they combine with molecular oxygen and hydrogen ions to form water.
- As they are passed along the chain, the energy carried by these electrons is transformed in the mitochondrion into a form ...
