Oxidative phosphorylation in mitochondria is often monitored by measuring oxygen consumption. When oxidative phosphorylation is proceeding rapidly, the mitochondria will rapidly consume oxygen. If there is little oxidative phosphorylation, only small amounts of oxygen will be used. You are given a suspension of isolated mitochondria and directed to add the following compounds in the order from a to h. With the addition of each compound, all of the previously added compounds remain present.

Required:
Predict the effect of each addition on oxygen consumption by the isolated mitochondria.
