ATP Synthesis in Mitochondrial Oxidative Phosphorylation

  • Ephraim F. Korman
  • Jerome McLick


I would like to tell you about some recent work done at the Enzyme Institute on a chemical reaction mechanism for the ATP synthesis part of mitochondrial oxidative-phosphorylation. This work was carried out by Dr. Jerome McLick and myself, and is called the KORMAN-McLICK mechanism for mitochondrial ATP synthesis(1).
