1. 7 Useful Tips for Oligomycin

    Oligomycin is an antibiotic that inhibits ATP synthase by blocking its proton channel (F0 subunit), which is necessary for oxidative phosphorylation of ADP to ATP (energy production). The inhibition of ATP synthesis would also stop electron transport chain. Because the high proton concentration build up is not dissipated, the free energy released by biological oxidation of substrates is not enough to pump any more protons against the steep gradient.
