Proton gradient

Proton gradient

in biology, the proton gradient may be used as an intermediate energy source for heat and flagellar rotation. It results from the higher concentration of protons outside the inner membrane of the mitochondria than inside the membrane, and becomes the driving force behind atp synthesis/hydrolysis.
