ATP synthase represents a machine at the molecular level which couples the rotation of an axle in a wheel with the endergonic production of ATP, the general source of chemical energy in the cell. The natural system prototypically bears all features of a macroscopic motor: a rotor within a stator held by a membrane and fueled by a difference in chemical potential in the form of a proton gradient combined with a machine for ATP production. The assembly of axle and wheel to a rotor device reminds… CONTINUE READING
