  • Uses of ATP
    • Active Transport
      • Changes the shape of the carrier protein
    • Glycolysis in respiration
      • Activation of glucose by phosphorylation ATP-> ADP+P
    • Maintaining resting potential
      • Na K pump
        • 2 K in 3 Na out to maintain negatively charged membrane inside the cell
    • Muscle contraction
      • ATP binds to myosin head to allow it to detach from the actin
        • Splitting of ATP -> ADP+P provides energy for myosin head to pull actin filament along
