In Eukaryotes it occurs in inner membrane of mitochondria while in prokaryotes it occurs in cell plasma membrane.


Electron transport chain produces most of ATP. (34) In Eukaryotes ETC occurs in inner membrane of mitochondria. But prokaryotes doesn't have mitochondria which is a membranes bound organelle. The only membrane prokaryotes have is their plasma membrane. So ETC occurs in there.
