What is ATP?

ATP stands for Adenosine Triphosphate
ATP - an energy-carrying molecule found in the cells of all living things. Captures chemical energy obtained from the breakdown of food molecules and releases it to fuel other cellular processes.

The ATP consists of 3 phosphate that are connected by oxygens to each other. The main function of the ATP is to transport energy within cells for metabolism. ATP is most important in cell as ATP is waht makes the cell to work, and it is vital part in the diet of all living things.

ATP is made up of Adenosine diphosphate or adenosine monophosphate, and when used in metabolism it converts back into these three prosecutors. therefore, ATP is continuously being recycled in organisms.

What gets continually attached and broken off?


The structure of the ATP molecule consists of five main components. They are three phosphate groups, a five carbon base sugar ribose, and the N base adenine. Most of the energy is stored in the high-energy bond of the last phosphate group. ATP is referred to as the "energy currency" of the cell because it is earned in exergonic reactions and spent in ender gonic reactions. At certain steps of many metabolic processes, an unbound phosphate atom that an enzyme cleaves from some substance becomes attached to ADP.

The result is an ATP molecule. When ATP transfers a phosphate group somewhere else, it reverts to ADP. Energy is input through aerobic respiration and the product is energy output for diverse cellular reactions and activities. Energy necessary to make usable ATP comes from aerobic respiration. Energy released as ATP goes to ADP is used for in cellular activities and cellular reactions. A better way to further understand ATP using objects is the watermill,the water mill turning round and round shows the ATP releasing and gaining energy like the Water mill collecting and releasing the water. The stored energy is when the water is on the holder of the mill where it hasn’t turn to the point where the water will fall, during that very short period, the water is stored. As the ATP goes to a point where the stored water starts to drop, it release the water( energy) which ADP. This is what it is called when the energy is used or release where we can match the part where the water has fallen of the wood as the ADP.
