  • Oxidative Phosphorilation
    • The electron trasport chain
      • electrons form reduced FAD and NAD used
      • electrons pass from protein to protein - redox reactions
      • the redox reactions provides the energy for the mitochondria to actively pump H+ into out of teh criste
      • O2 = required as it is the final electron acceptor inthe transport chain
        • forms water
    • Chemiosmosis
      • H+ protons diffuse back into the criste via ATP synthase
      • this truns the protein
      • ATP synthase then condenses ADP+Pi into ATP
