Electron transport chain

The electron transport or respiratory chain gets its name from the fact electrons are transported to meet up with oxygen from respiration at the end of the chain. Also known as the respiratory chain. It is composed of the mitochondrial enzymes (also known as complexes I, II, III, and IV) that transfer electrons from one complex to another, eventually resulting in the formation of ATP.
