During oxidative phosphorylation, ATP is generated from the energy obtained from the proton concentration gradient by proton accumulation in the mitochondria's intermembrane space. This proton accumulation is the result of the pumping out of protons from the inner membrane as a result of electron transport chain (ETC).
When the terminal electron acceptor in the chain of carrier proteins, _______ is reduced, _______ is produced.
A. NADH; water
B. oxygen; glucose
C. water; oxygen
D. oxygen; water
