Term Information [More information on respiratory chain]

Accession
GO:0070469
Name
respiratory chain
Ontology
cellular_component
Synonyms
membrane electron transport chain
Definition
The protein complexes that form the electron transport system (the respiratory chain), associated with a cell membrane, usually the plasma membrane (in prokaryotes) or the inner mitochondrial membrane (on eukaryotes). The respiratory chain complexes transfer electrons from an electron donor to an electron acceptor and are associated with a proton pump to create a transmembrane electrochemical gradient.
