    7)! They are derived from vitamins, are present in tiny quantities and when reduced they must be reoxidised in another enzyme reaction. Think of NAD+ and NADP+ as bees buzzing around the cell collecting hydrogen and then delivering it to a hydrogen user. The prosthetic groups: FAD and FMN FAD (Fig. 3) and FMN (Fig. 4) are enzyme co-factors derived from riboflavin (Chapter 53) and like NAD+ and NADP+ they collaborate as co-substrates in oxidation/reduction reactions and are reduced to FADH2 and FMNH2.

    The respiratory chain is the major source of ROS In theory, molecular oxygen should be completely reduced in complex IV by four electrons to form water without the formation of intermediates. In practice, occasionally, partial reduction occurs with oxygen being converted to superoxide anion radicals (Chapter 15).
