These transporters were inferred to play roles in transportation of small solutes like sugar in response to chemiosmotic
coupling in oxidative and photosynthetic phosphorylation.
The amendment of the ion concentration gradients leads to deterioration of the essential processes of cell, such as transport of electrons, translocation proteins, stages of oxidative phosphorylation, and other reactions dependent enzymes, resulting in loss of chemiosmotic
control of the affected cell, leading to cell death .
mechanism of antimicrobial activity of Ag+ in Vibrio cholerae," Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy, vol.
At these temperatures, there is natural tendency for intracellular ice formation as well as harmful changes to the chemiosmotic
balance of the cell membrane .

coupling, and the mitochondrial heat production by respiratory chain.
Loc.cit).The anti microbial property of Tea tree oil is due to disruption of permeability barrier of cell membrane structure, by accompanying loss of chemiosmotic
control (Cox et al., 2000) and by compromising the membrane (Carson et al.
Methanogens convert intermediates of anaerobic biomass degradation, like [H.sub.2]+C[O.sub.2], formate, acetate, and methylated compounds to methane via distinct yet overlapping pathways, and couple this process to energy conservation via a chemiosmotic
However, the ability of EOs to disrupt the permeability barrier of cell membrane structures and the accompanying loss of chemiosmotic
control is the most likely reason for its lethal action .

gradient that generates what is known as the
