  • ATP
    • Energy is needed for:
      • Movement
        • Muscle Contractions
      • Cell division
        • Mitosis
      • Metabolic Reactions
      • Protein synthesis
      • Active transport
      • Bile Production
      • Nitrogen fixation
      • Photosynthesis
    • Role of ATP:
      • Single reaction - quick
      • Immediate energy source
      • Released in small quantities
      • 'Universal currency' for all cells
      • Moves around freely and easily
    • [Adenosine]-P-P~P
      • High energy bond between 2nd & 3rd P, represented ~
    • ADP + Pi --> ATP
      • Condensation reaction - gives out H2O and Anabolic - build up - take in energy
      • Reverse reaction s a hydrolysis + energy is given out - catabolic  break down
