Relate the structure and function of the ATP molecule with the following terms:
free energy/potential energy:
-Synthesis of ATP is endergonic. Energy released from hydrolysis of ATP into ADP is used to perform cellular work usually by coupling the exergonic reaction of ATP hydrolysis with endergonic reactions.
- ATP molecule is relatively unstable because it will want to give away its phosphate group. Stabilization of ADP and Pi is much greater than ATP
-energy stored inside ATP is potential form of potential energy.
-Substrate level phosphorylation is metabolic reaction that results in formation of ATP.By transferring phosphate group to ADP from another phosphorylated compound
