NAD(P)H productuion can be assayed how?
By observing the absorbance at 340 nm.
Which complexes pump out protons (and how many) when transferring electrons?
Complex I: 4H
Complex III: 4H
Complex IV: 2H
How many electrons does pump I accept?
2 electrons
Complex I accepts electrons from what?
Complex I transfers electrons to what?
Coenzyme Q (ubiquinone)
What is the enzyme name for Complex II?
Succinate Dehydrogenase
What does Complex II do?
Make FADH2 and transfers to coenzyme Q.
What is another name for complex III?
Cytochrome b/c1 complex
What does complex III do?
Accepts electrons from coenzyme Q and transfers it to cytochrome c.
What exactly is cytochrome c?
A soluble protein in the INTERMEMBRANE space that transfers electrons from Complex III to Complex IV.
What does complex IV do?
Accepts electrons from cyt c and transfers them to H+ and O2 to make water
What is another name of Complex IV?
Cytochrome oxidase
What is another name for complex I?
NADH Dehydrogenase
