Where ATP synthase is located is
key to understanding how it produces ATP. Clicking on each
of the thumbnail images will bring up a larger, labeled version
of the described scene.
see the Flash movie for the following sequence of images,
The mitochondria, a key site
of ATP synthesis. Its structure is an important aspect of
ATP synthase and the complexes that form
the electron transport chain (ETC) are located throughout
Here we see how ATP is oriented in the
inner membrane of the mitochondria.
