BY4 - ATP

HideShow resource information
What is an exergonic reaction?
When energy is released
1 of 7
What is the enzyme that catalyses ATP --> ADP and Pi
ATPase
2 of 7
How is ATP suited to its function?
It is soluble, it can be transported within the cell, it can transfer chemical energy to energy requiring processes. It releases small amounts of energy (30kjmol-1) and the hydrolysis only requires one enzyme.
3 of 7
What is an endergonic reaction
Requires the input of energy.
4 of 7
Why is ATP the 'universal energy currency'?
It transfers energy for biochemical reactions in the cell of all living organisms.
5 of 7
Is energy released or produced in reactions?
Released
6 of 7
Name the three components of ATP
Ribose sugar, Adenine, 3 phosphate groups.
