Escherichia coli K-12 substr. MG1655 Gene-Ontology-Terms Class: GO:0006119 - oxidative phosphorylation

Synonyms: respiratory-chain phosphorylation

Definition: The phosphorylation of ADP to ATP that accompanies the oxidation of a metabolite through the operation of the respiratory chain. Oxidation of compounds establishes a proton gradient across the membrane, providing the energy for ATP synthesis.
