ATP Synthase Gradient

ATP Synthase Gradient

This site provides a Flash movie of the ATP synthase gradient in action. The video introduces biological gradients and focuses on hydrogen ion concentration gradients. This animation also demonstrates how the potential energy that results from a hydrogen ion gradient uses ADP and inorganic phosphate to synthesize ATP by utilizing the enzyme complex ATP Synthase.
