ATP synthase
A proton-translocating ATPase, found in the inner membrane of mitochondria, chloroplasts and the plasmalemma of bacteria. It can be known as the F1/Fo or CF1/CFo ATPase, or as the class of F-type ATPases. In all these cases, the enzyme is driven in reverse by the large proton motive force generated by the electron transport chain, and thus synthesizes, rather than uses, ATP. See also chemiosmosis, V-type ATPase, P-type ATPase.
