Oxidative Phosphorylation Analysis Service

Online Inquiry

Oxidative phosphorylation, an important mammalian energy metabolism procedure, refers to the redox reactions involving the flow of electrons along a series of membrane-bound proteins, coupled with the generation of adenosine triphosphate (ATP). It begins with the oxidation of NADH and FADH2. The energy of the electrons released by these two molecules is harnessed in a step-wise manner and used to create a proton gradient across the inner mitochondrial membrane. Afterwards, this proton gradient drivers the generation of ATP from ADP by the enzyme ATP synthase. The ultimate acceptor of these high-energy electrons is oxygen and therefore oxidative phosphorylation generates both ATP and water (Figure 1). Since its important roles in physiological procedures, any process that rudimentarily interrupts the generation of this molecule leads to serious diseases like fatal infantile cardioencephalomyopathy and myoclonic epilepsy and ragged-red fiber disease. In Creative Proteomics, we provide reliable, rapid and cost-effective analysis of oxidative phosphorylation metabolites to speed up your research aims ranging from diseases diagnosis to gaining new insights in disease mechanism or treatment.
