What are the events of chemiosmosis?
Chemiosmosis involves the pumping of protons through special channels in the membranes of mitochondria from the inner to the outer compartment. The pumping establishes a proton gradient
Chemiosmosis in the thylakoid membrane results in the synthesis of ATP during light reaction. Thylakoid membranes contain proteins. These proteins make use of light energy to drive electron transport chains. This generates a chemiosmotic potential across the thylakoid membrane and NADPH. The ATP synthase enzyme uses the chemiosmotic potential to make ATP during photo- phosphorylation.
Through chemiosmosis in the inner mitochondrial membrane. In order to get to this glycolysis and the Krebs cycle (aka: cytric acid cycle) must occur first. In chemiosmosis electrons are pumped against their proton gradient creating ATP in which oxygen couples with 2 hydrogen and is released as water
