Electron transport , Biology

1) It is the series of coupled oxidation/reduction reactions where the electrons are passed like hot potatoes from one membrane-bound protein/enzyme to another before being finally attached to the terminal electron acceptor (commonly oxygen or NADPH). ATP is produced by this process.
 2) The coupled series of oxidation/reduction reactions during which the ATP is generated by energy transfer as electrons move from high reducing state to the lower reducing state.
