    is oxidative phosphorilation same as Electron transport chain? and their locaion is innermitochondria membrane?
    electrons are pumped from innermembrane mitochondria to martix or vice versa?

    there are numerous electron transport chains working in the cell. But yes, oxidative phosphorylation is a metabolic pathway where electrons are passed along the electron transport chain in innermitochondrial membrane and electrons are pumped from the matrix into to intermembrane space.

    Proton gradient from Matrix to inner membrane space where it makes a High to Low (matrix), therefore ATPase could be coupled and ATP synthesized inside the mitochondria...
