Mitochondria are membrane-enclosed bodies in the cells of animals, plants and fungi that are responsible for generating most of the cell’s supply of ATP , the molecule used to transport energy around cells.

ATP synthase is the enzyme in the mitochondria that generates ATP via a molecular motor, the ATP synthase c-subunit, that lies in the mitochondrial membrane.

I will talk about simulations that I have performed of the ATP synthase c-subunit in the mitochondrial inner membrane, with particular attention to the interactions this protein makes with a particular lipid type – cardiolipin – which is characteristic of that membrane and known to be important in mitochondrial function.
