Substrate-level phosphorylation occurs during Glycolysis and the Kreb's Cycle and involves the physical addition 

of a free phosphate to ADP to form ATP. Oxidative phosphorylation, on the other hand, takes place along the 

electron transport chain, where ATP is synthesized indirectly from the creation of a proton gradient and the 

movement of these protons back accross the membrane through the protein channel, ATP synthase. As the 

protons pass through, ATP is created.
