ATP ATP Presentation Transcript

  • Structure and Function of ATP
  • What is ATP?
    • ATP is the cell’s source of energy.
    • It is used by almost all biological reactions that occur in your body.
  • Structure
    • 3 Parts:
      • Adenosine (nitrogenous base)
      • Ribose (sugar)
      • Three Phosphates
  • Source of Energy
    • During chemical reactions ATP gets broken down into ADP (Adenosine Di-Phosphate).
    • The bond that holds the last phosphate group is broken.
    • When this bond is broken energy is released.
  • ADP - ATP
    • Energy is then needed to re-create the bond and form ATP
  • ATP Cycle
  • ATP Cycle
  • Summary Questions
    • What is the biological importance of ATP?
    • When ATP is broken down, what is it converted into?
    • Where do we get the energy to make ATP from?
