ETC - purpose of having different dehydrogenases?

... have different NADH dehydrogenase complexes (more specifically, NDH-1 and NDH-2). One major difference between the two is the fact that NDH-1 is a coupling site (so pumps out protons while transferring electrons) while NDH-2 is not; will not pump out any protons. As a result of this, the NET ATP ...

Re: connexins & pannexins

... gap junction proteins, connexins, innexins and pannexins, emphasizing their importance as intercellular channels that provide ionic and metabolic coupling and as non-junctional channels that can function as a paracrine signaling pathway. We discuss that two distinct groups of proteins form gap ...
