Electron Transporters 1. Glycolysis: - 2NADH 2. Pyruvate processing -2NADH 3. Citric Acid Cycle -6 NADH -2 FADH Total: 10 NADH 2FADH2 ATP Synthesis/ Chemiosmotic Theory Electric Potential : Charge difference - High Positive Charge in the inner membrane space compared to the matrix Chemical Potential -High positive charge in the inner membrane space means low pH, Acidic ATP synthase: Enzyme that makes ATP in the matrix by moving protons against their electrochemical gradient. Chemiosmotic theory: ATP is generated when ATP synthase pumps protons across their electrochemical gradient using the enzyme ATP synthase. This is called the proton motor force. Evidence for the chemiosmotic theory is that respiring mitochondria secrete protons Certain molecules lower ATP synthesis by collapsing the proton gradient 1. Uncouplers : lower ATP synthesis -Hydrophobic compounds with a dissociable proton carry protons across the membrane. Dinitrophenol 2. Ionophores: lower ATP synthesis -Hydrophobic molecules that insert into membranes to form channels that allow free passage of cations back across the membrane. -Gramicidin: antibiotic produced by Bacillus breva; used to treat local (topological) infections of gram+ bacteria. 3. Thermogenin Shunts protons, just slows down ATP synthesis, increases heat. (newborns/hibernation)  All have “brown fat” (i.e. adipose tissue enriched in mitochondria).  Electron transport is uncoupled by “uncoupling protein” (thermogenin).  Thermogenin is activated by fatty acids of adipose cells. Liver Vs. Muscle/ Brain Brain (Glycerol 3 Phosphate shuttle) • The Glycerol-3P/DHAP shuttle results in NADH entry at comlex II (in muscles) Brain/Muscle: Produces 30 ATP Sends NADH from glycolysis to Complex 1 via the Glycerol 3 Phosphate shuttle -Uses enzymes DHAP reductase and G3P dehydrogenase NADH = 8 * 2.5 = 20 FADH = 2 * 1.5 = 3 NADH (sent to complex I) 2 * 1.5 = 3 + 4 atp from glycolysis = 30 ATP total The liver ( Malate-Aspartate Shuttle) The Malate/Aspartate shuttle allows entry of NADH at complex I (& thus is more efficient-ATP wise-than the G3P/DHAP shuttle. (in liver) Liver: 32 total ATP Sends NADH from glycolysis to complex 2 via the aspartate- Malate shuttle NADH = 10* 2.5 = 25 FADH = 2 * 1.5 = 3 + 4ATP from glycolysis/krebs =32 total ATP (more efficient) Inhibition of the ETC Complex I: • Rotenone: broad spectrum insecticide produced by some leguminous plants (Lonchocarpus – derris root), also toxic to fish; kills by inhibiting respiratory e transport. • Amytal (amobarbitol) a barbiturate drug that blocks electron transport from NADH to coenzyme Q at the same point as the insecticide rotenone. Sometimes used as a sedative or sleep- inducing agent (especially for animals). Complex III • Antimycin: Often used as an antibiotic for fungi; stops respiratory e transport between cyt b & c. Also approved as a “fishicide” to kill fish for manangement purposes. Complex IV • Sodium Azide: Na-N=N=N. Azides very reactive, especially in light. • Cyanide toxicity = 50 – 200mg per individual (this is LD50). • Jonestown Massacre (1978) – cult members were forced to drink punch laced with KCN. Alternate Oxidation -weird plants; Skip complex III, IV -make less atp, give off more heat

Jim McGreen Ohio University

"Knowing I can count on the Elite Notetaker in my class allows me to focus on what the professor is saying instead of just scribbling notes the whole time and falling behind."

Jennifer McGill UCSF Med School

"Selling my MCAT study guides and notes has been a great source of side revenue while I'm in school. Some months I'm making over $500! Plus, it makes me happy knowing that I'm helping future med students with their MCAT."

Bentley McCaw University of Florida

"I was shooting for a perfect 4.0 GPA this semester. Having StudySoup as a study aid was critical to helping me achieve my goal...and I nailed it!"

Parker Thompson 500 Startups

"It's a great way for students to improve their educational experience and it seemed like a product that everybody wants, so all the people participating are winning."
