Connecting Concepts: Cell Biology/Chemiosmosis 2: Chemiosmosis in Eukaryotic Cells

Students construct chemiosmosis pathways in mitochondria and chloroplasts. Students will: 1) select the correct components (electron donor and acceptor, ETC, ATP synthase) and place them in the appropriate subcellular location; 2) apply concepts about redox reactions, concentration gradients, and energetics to explain how chemiosmosis fits in a cell’s overall metabolism; and 3) summarize properties of chemiosmosis in organelles and Parcoccus denitificans.

Part two of three excellent interactive exercises that investigate the concept of speciation. Students are required to draw conclusions from information and data provided. This is a very difficult concept for students. Very well organized and well written.
