ATP Synthase

  1. Dec 28, 2007 #1
    So I was learning about cellular respiration and all that jazz, and when we got to the electron transport system, I didn't get a very great explanation on how ATP Synthase works. I know the basics of what it does, but I guess I'd like to understand it more... If anyone could explain it for me that would be really great.

    I used this website to teach myself:

    http://student.ccbcmd.edu/~gkaiser/biotutorials/cellresp/etsch.html [Broken]

    It includes an animated gift of ATP synthase in action. If you have specific questions we can try to answer them.

    Take a look at http://www.atpsynthase.info
    Wikipedia also has a nice entry on ATP synthase.
