Comments p.162 bottom paragraph:"Despite the differences in the complexity, functionally important subunits are conserved and in all sources the enzyme catalyses the synthesis of ATP by using the energy of the electrochemical gradient of protons (or less commonly of sodium) generated by the respiratory chain. F0F1 is an unusually efficient rotary motor that synthesizes ATP at rates exceeding 100 molecules per second (primary source)."
