The Conformational Model and the Structure Function Relation in Mitochondria

  • David E. Green

Abstract

The mitochondrion has long been studied as an organelle which couples electron transfer to synthesis of ATP and other processes. The transduction of energy inherent in these coupled processes poses three closely related problems: (a) what is the mechanistic principle underlying the transduction?; (b) how can this principle account for multiple coupling modes; and (c) how are these coupling modes controlled? We are now at the stage at which partial but definitive answers to each of these questions can now be given with a reasonable degree of certainty.
