. The energy to cause a conformational change in F1 particle of ATPase comes directly from


A. ATP                                                              B. breakdown of the proton gradient

C.   break down of electron gradient              D. PSI

 

Best Answer

(b)

The break down of the proton gradient provides sufficient energy to cause a conformational change in the F1 particle of the ATPase forming trans-membrane channel. These channels facilitate diffusion of protons thereby synthesizing the energy molecules of ATP.
