How is the proton flow used by the ATP synthase complex in the 
mitochondrial internal membrane to generate ATP from ADP and Pi? I 
mean, what different domains in the molecule take part in the process? 
I'd like a detailed explanation, showing the different domains of each 
F0 and F1 subunits and its respective functions. I don't expect you to 
answer this directly, because it'd rather be a fairly large answer, 
but may be to point me out an Internet resource about this.
