The high-energy electrons associated with NADH or FADH2 are transferred by NADH dehydrogenase or succinate dehydrogenase through a series of specific electron carriers that constitute the electron-transport chain (or respiratory chain) of the inner mitochondrial membrane.

catalyzes reoxidation of NADH to NAD+
catalyzes reoxidation of FADH2 to FAD
energy conserved as H+s are pumped across mitochondrial membrane
oxygen is reduced to water
