Description
Lecture 11 Respiration IIRespiratory and mitochondrial electron transport take place in the inner mitochondrial membraneThe Electron Transport ChainMany proteins come together to produce the complexes found in the intermembrane space NADH dehydrogenase cytochrome complex and cytochrome oxidaseNADH dehydrogenaseoxidizes NADHWhy do the Electrons MoveThe electrons move because the redox components of the respiratory chain are organized from negative to positive redox potentialsredox potential becomes more positive as you move down Cofactors bound to proteins organic molecules play a role in redox reactions Oxygen is the terminal electron acceptor which is why it is needed in the electron transport chainnothing in the chain has a stronger pull
