On the Coupling of Electron Transport to Phosphorylation

  • Jui H. Wang


After a general thermodynamic discussion of the coupling of oxidation to phosphorylation, quantitative treatments of free energy transduction based upon the proton gradient model, the charged membrane model and the chemical model respectively are summarized and compared with experimental data. The relationship between energy transduction and respiratory control is reexamined.
