Oxidative Phosphorylation is dependent on all of the following except:
a. An increase in the standard reduction potential as electrons move from NADH to oxygen
b. A pH gradient
c. The ratio of ADP to ATP
d. The change in free energy
e. C and D
Answer is : E (C and D).
The oxidative phosphorylation is the process in which ATP is synthesised from ADP via the protin gradient energy.
In this case, the the electron moves from NADH to the oxygen. There is found more reduction potential in subsequent steps. This provides the reduction potential
The inter membrane space has more proton as compared to the matrix. That's why pH gradient is required.
The more the ADP to ATP ratio in the cell, more will be ATP synthesis occur.
