Given reaction: NADH + H++ ubiquinone ⇌ NAD+ + ubiquinol
One process catalyzed by NADH dehydrogenase is
NADH + H+ + ubiquinone ⇌ NAD+ + ubiquinol
The standard reduction potentials for the half-reactions are given in the table:
Oxidant Reductant E0'(V)
ubiquinone + 2H+ + 2e- ubiquinol 0.045
NAD+ + H+ + 2e- NADH -0.32
Calculate ΔE0' for the reaction as shown:
