The Inner membrane
Is folded into cristae this gives the membrane a larger
Surface Area.
Has a different phospholipid composition, and is
impermeable to most ions.
Has embedded in it many electron carriers and ATP
The electron carriers are enzymes. Each is associated
with a cofactor.
The cofactor is a non protein. They are haem groups and
contain an Iron atom.…read more
