ATP synthase is the worlds smallest power generator. This is the membrane bound part of the ATP synthase protein. ATP Synthase uses the proton gradient within the mitochondria to generate ATP molecules. The ATP molecules go on to power many reactions within a cell including those that power your muscles.
