The Transport Systems of Mitochondrial Membranes

  • Albert L. Lehninger


The respiratory and phosphorylative functions of mitochondria are now widely known and much information is available regarding the nature and intramitochondrial location of the enzymes of the tricarboxylic acid cycle, the electron transport chain, and the enzymes concerned in oxidative phosphorylation. The concept of the respiratory assembly of flavoproteins and cytochromes as a structural and functional unit of the inner membrane and the successful reconstitution of oxidative phosphorylation from purified ATP-synthetase and inner membrane vesicles are land-marks in the progress of the last decade.
