ETC - purpose of having different dehydrogenases?

... down oxidation of NADH and quinol, it may be an advantage to be able to direct electrons along alternate routes that bypass coupling sites and translocate fewer protons. This could ensure adequate rates of reoxidation of NADH and quinol. -- White, 2003. Also, (delta)p = proton motive force. ...

Cell membrane targeting signals.

... Rough ER and make their way to the membrane through the excretory pathway, or are they simply synthesised in the cytosol with signal sequences to translocate straight into the membrane? EDIT: Ok, so I've googled a bit more and I think proteins destined for the cell membrane are (post-translation) ...

beta oxidation/krebs cycle confusion

... and 8 * 4 = 32 ATP out of this acetyl-CoA is formed 3 * 9 = 27 NADH and 9 FADH2, resulting in 91 ATP, and 9 ATP from 9 GTP thus: 90 ATP But to translocate the fatty acid, we use 2 ATP to form 2 ADP thus the total yield of ATP of oxidation of a C18 is 120 ATP the rest is easy now.
