Definitions for "Chemiosmosis"
process by which energy released is used to generate ATP when a substance moves along a gradient
Process whereby an electrochemical proton gradient (pH plus electric potential) across a membrane is used to drive an energy-requiring process such as ATP synthesis or transport of molecules across a membrane against their concentration gradient; also called chemiosmotic coupling. ( Figure 16-1)
the subdivision of cellular respiration in which the energy given off by electrons is used to pump protons across a membrane and synthesize ATP.
