  • $\begingroup$ Dear David thanks for your welcoming so much.Honestly I am a student as you guessed but this one was not a school project.It's really nice of you pushing the student's to find the answer themself , instead of just asking them .but I did a search on the web and couldn't find what i wanted since I am not studying in english-there was also nothing on the web in my native language Persian.So if you can help me with the keywords that I have to search to find my answer,I will be really thankful.Have a nice time. $\endgroup$ – Arman Jalali May 16 '19 at 7:48
  • $\begingroup$ @ArmanJalali Hi, the question can be easily resolved if you try to find articles speaking about each of the four subunits of the transport chain individually. For instance, for the first subunit (NADH oxidoreductase) you can find your answer in the abstract of this paper Good luck with the rest! $\endgroup$ – Athe May 16 '19 at 11:30
  • $\begingroup$ The Wikipedia page on Mitochondrial DNA is an easy first stop. Comes up on the first page of a Google search. You need to search in English, I'm afraid. Your browser should allow you to switch search languages. Firefox does, for sure. $\endgroup$ – David May 16 '19 at 13:27
  • $\begingroup$ Actually the article is available in Farsi: fa.wikipedia.org/wiki/دی%E2%80%8Cان%E2%80%8Cای_میتوکندریایی $\endgroup$ – David May 16 '19 at 13:28
