Reflect and apply List the reactions of electron transport that liberate enough energy to drive the phosphorylation of ADP.
Answer to relevant QuestionsDefine P/O ratio and indicate why it is important. Can an uncoupler of oxidative phosphorylation inhibit electron transport from one component of the electron transport chain to another? Why or why not? Calculate the ATP yield for the complete oxidation of one molecule of palmitic acid (16 carbons). How does this figure differ from that obtained for stearic acid (18 carbons)? Consider the b-oxidation steps, processing of ...Outline the steps involved in the production of malonyl-CoA from acetyl-CoA. A larger proton gradient is required to form a single ATP in chloroplasts than in mitochondria. Suggest a reason why. Hint: Ions can move across the thylakoid mem-brane more easily than across the inner mitochondrial ...
