Proton gradients (chemiosmosis)

Post by randomkeyboard » Thu Oct 21, 2010 9:30 pm

Hi, I've been set an essay about chemiosmosis - to describe the key features of the system and the 'various ways this can be used'
Now, I get that its all about the proton gradient coupled with the ETC, but various ways?? I don't understand what else it can be used for! Any help would be really appreciated thankyou! :)
