You should be able:
 sketch a working model of FoF1 ATP synthase to illustrate how proton translocation through the
complex promotes ATP synthesis; appreciate how the complex can be forced to work in reverse.
ATP synthase – a proton pump coupled to ATP synthesis
 Oxidative Phosphorylation establishes a proton
gradient across inner mitochondrial membrane
 Since asymmetric distribution of ions, energy
needed to produce this (i.e. oxidation): it is also
an energy source – used by cell to make ATP.
 How is this coupled?
