Proton gradient

A proton gradient is set up in a mitochondria membrane, where the proton concentration is higher outside the inner membrane than inside the membrane. It is formed due to the electron transport chain in respiration

ATP synthesis is powered by proton gradients using ATP synthase enzyme. Protons flow through ATP synthase, which causes ADP + Pi to form ATP molecule
