Welcome to Microbe Pundit , all students of biomolecular engineering!

Study questions on the fueling reactions of biosynthesis

Question A
*What is the justification for combining energy and reducing power into a single entity-driving force?

Question B
*ATP generation by transmembrane ion gradients involves two steps: establishing the gradient, and using its energy to produce ATP. What mechanisms have microbes evolved for these two steps?
