Tunnel carrying of electron in biological systems possesses some particularities. Firstly, electron does from one localized state to another localized state. Secondly, energy levels of these states are different and excess of the energy is transferred to so named Accepting Mode (hereinafter AM). Part of the surplus energy dissipates, but part of it moves over to other forms and is saved. Dissipation is required for ensuring the direction of the process. Conservation of the energy is required for ensuring energy need of alive system.
