Nameaerobic electron transfer (transport) chain, ETC
DescriptionThese complexes act in the process of oxidative phosphorylation to create a proton gradient which powers the ATP synthase complex. Reducing equivalents in the form of NADH and quinone from the TCA cycle stepped down in potential finally resulting in a reduced cytochrome c which, in cytochrome oxidase, pairs with oxygen as a terminal elextron acceptor.
