Oxidative Phosphorylation

During oxidative phosphorylation, electrons are transferred from electron donors to electron acceptors such as oxygen in redox reactions. These redox reactions release the energy stored in the relatively weak double bond of O2, which is used to form ATP. In eukaryotes, these redox reactions are catalyzed by a series of protein complexes within the inner membrane of the cell's mitochondria, whereas, in prokaryotes, these proteins are located in the cell's intermembrane space. These linked sets of proteins are called electron transport chains. In eukaryotes, five main protein complexes are involved, whereas in prokaryotes many different enzymes are present, using a variety of electron donors and acceptors.
