2001-08-06 Added DEFINITION The oxidation of intermediary metabolites by molecular oxygen in the mitochondria of animal, plant, fungal and protist cells; often requires the successive transfer of hydrogen atoms or electrons, first to NAD(+), then from NADH to an ubiquinone (Q), next from QH[2] to ferricytochrome c and finally from ferrocytochrome c to oxygen. These reactions are catalyzed by, e.g. an oxidoreductase using NAD(+) or NADP(+) as an acceptor and the enzymes NADH dehydrogenase (ubiquinone), ubiquinol-cytochrome-c reductase, and cytochrome-c oxidase. NADH(+) may be used as the first hydrogen acceptor and then NAD(P)(+) transhydrogenase is required for the initial reduction of NAD(+). Particularly with substrates of high redox-potential neither NAD(+) nor NADP(+) may be required and appropriate enzymes catalyze either the direct reduction of Q (e.g. succinate dehydrogenase) or introduce electrons via the electron-transfer flavoprotein. In the light-driven oxidation of water in plants hydrogen atoms or electrons are transferred successively to plastoquinone (PQ), thence to plastocyanin and finally to NAD(+) in reactions catalyzed by photosystem II.
