Why is it important that a membrane separate the cellular regions on either side of an ATP synthase molecule in order for the protein to perform its function?

    Pretty sure its to sure it's so the atp it produces doesn't escape , one of the membranes is selectively permeable so atp can be released in small quantities when required . I wouldn't take that to the bank though , there may be more to it then that , I can post some further reading where you might find the exact answer if you like .

    well they're talking about the separation of regions, which affects the function of ATPase, while there is importance in maintaining ATP and releasing it gradually, i think the question i referring to difference in proton concentrations (and the proton gradient caused) across the membrane.
