ATP

HideShow resource information
Why is ATP useful?
Immediate energy source; releases energy in smaller, managable amounts; hydrolysis of ATP to ADP is a single reaction that releases immediate energy
1 of 5
Equation for ATP
ADP + Pi ---> ATP + H2O
2 of 5
Describe the bonds between 3 phosphate groups in ATP
Weak and unstable (low activation energy so broken easily to release energy)
3 of 5
How does the adding of a phosphate molecule to ADP occur?
Photophosphorylation, oxidative phosphorylation, substrate-level phosphorylation
4 of 5
Roles of ATP
Metabolic processes, movement, active transport, secretion, activation of molecules
