Inhibitors of electron transport chain mnemonic

Inhibitors of electron transport chain mnemonic
Hi!
In this post, we learn a mnemonic that tells us all about the inhibitors of the ETS!

The mnemonic is, "CRAP Tightens Muscle AND Produces Muscle ACHe"

Complex I inhibitors mnemonic
C - Chlorpromazine
R - Rotenone
A - Amobarbital
P - Piercidin A

Complex II inhibitors mnemonic
Tightens - Thenoyltrifluoroaceteate
Muscle - Malonate

Complex III inhibitors mnemonic
A - Antimycin A
N - Naphthoquinone
D - Dimercaprol
Produces - Phenformin
Muscle - Myxothiazole

Complex IV inhibitors mnemonic
A - Azide
C - Carbon monoxide (CO), Cyanide (CN-)
H - Hydrogen sulphide (H2S)

That's all!

Thanks Fayaz, for submitting this mnemonic, however, a part of it was wrong and that's why I modified it to match the facts :)

    1. Oh yes, I Googled it and realized it is.

      You could modify the mnemonic to:

      "CRAP tightens muscle and produces muscle ache "

      I'll change the image too when I get the time!
