Electron transfer chain

An electron transfer chain is a series of molecules that can capture and donate electrons, including cytochromes and flavoproteins, which act in series to transport the electrons of NADH or FADH2 to oxygen which is thereby reduced to water (H2O). Cellular respiration is mainly attributable to this consumption of oxygen. The respiratory chain is located in the internal membrane of the mitochondria.
