Redox State and Redox Environment in Biology

  title={Redox State and Redox Environment in Biology},
  author={Garry R Buettner},
Cells and tissues must maintain a reducing environment to survive. This reducing environment provides the electrochemical gradient needed for electron flow. This movement of electrons provides the energy needed to build and maintain cellular structures and associated functions. An array of redox couples is responsible for the electron transfer. Some of these redox couples are linked to each other to form sets of related couples. Sets of couples can be independent from other sets if activation… CONTINUE READING
