Definitions for "ATP synthase"
A membrane bound protein complex that uses the energy stored across the photosynthetic membrane to add inorganic phosphate to ADP, thus creating ATP. (Also known as coupling factor.)
An integral membrane protein that couples the transport of proteins with the formation of ATP.
Enzyme complex in the inner membrane of the mitochondrion and the thylakoid membrane of a chloroplast that catalyzes the formation of ATP from ADP and inorganic phosphate during oxidative phosphorylation and photosynthesis, respectively. Also present in the plasma membrane of bacteria.
