A mathematical model of electron transfer within the mitochondrial respiratory cytochromes.

Abstract:

A simple mathematical model of electron flow along the mitochondrial respiratory cytochrome assembly and the transfer of electrons to molecular oxygen is presented. First, an expression for the current-voltage relationship for a biological oxygen electrode is derived, and from this the relationship between oxygen consumption rate and oxygen partial pressure is determined. An independent relationship between mitochondrial oxygen partial pressure and oxygen supply rate is then derived. By elimi...
