Lecture Topics

  • ATP Synthesis will be Driven by a Proton Gradient
  • Coenzyme Q works as a Chemical Component of an Elaborate Electron/Proton Directed Rotary Engine
  • Summary of the Stages of Respiration


  • Chapter 18: Electron Transport and Oxidative Phosphorylation

Lecture Video: Respiration: Proton Pumps and ATP Synthesis

The final stages of cell respiration are outlined in this video. Professor Essigmann describes how a proton pump works to store energy for ATP synthesis. A physiological scenario is presented summarizing catabolism to this point in the course.
