What does the Electron transport chain produce?
The Electron Transport Chain produces ATP.
The ATP produced by the ETC is used in the Calvin Cycle. The Calvin Cycle requires CO2 and NADPH as well for it to work. The Calvin Cycle then produces Glucose (Sugars). The left over Glucose is then used and made as Starch.
In Eukaryotic cells the electron transport chain takes place in the mitochondria. The proteins that are used in the chain are located on the inner membrane. Prokaryotic cells which do not have membrane bound organelles, therefore they do not have mitochondria, however they must still produce ATP, so they use their cellular membrane for the electron transport chain.
Plants, fungi, and animals are all eukaryotes and possess mitochondria, which is the site of the electron transport chain. Prokaryotes have no mitochondria and perform the electron transport chain across their cell membranes. Electron transport chain also occurs in thylakoid membrane of chloroplasts.
Incorrect: Some bacteria do not have an electron transport chain and just glycolysis. If they do have an electron transport chain, then it would take place in the mitochondria. User response: Actually bacteria do not have a mitochondrium. Their electron transport chain is located inside their cytoplasmic membrane.
An electron transport chain couples a reaction between an electron donor(such as NADH) and an electron acceptor (such as O2) to the transfer of H+ ions across a membrane ,through a set of biochemical reactions. These H+ ions are used to produce adenosine triphosphate (ATP) which is the end product of the ETC.
