In our Mitochondria Poster© your students will see the large protein complexes of the electron transport chain, which create the electrochemical gradient that powers ATP synthase to build ATP. ATP is then transported out of the mitochondrion by the adenine nucleotide translocator, and diffuses through the channels in the VDAC protein in the outer membrane.
