  • What is ATP and what does ATP stand for?ATP is the primary molecule that is used for energy in living things.

    Adenosine triphosphate

  • What is ATP made up of? Draw a picture.ATP is made up of 1 adenine base, 1 ribose sugar, and 3 phosphate groups.

  • Where is the energy stored?Most energy in ATP is stored in the chemical bond in-between the 2nd and 3rd phosphate group.

  • What must break off ATP to produce energy?The 3rd phosphate group!

  • What is formed when this happens?ADPAdenosine diphosphate + a free phosphate

  • What the equations for energy storage and energy release.Energy storage:ADP + P + food energy ATP

    Energy release:ATP ADP + P + ENERGY!

  • What are two common biological molecules that make up ATP? Where else is each found?

    1) Ribose sugar (found in RNA)

    2) Adenine (found in DNA & RNA)

  • Name some things that the cell might generate energy for.Active transport (across cell membrane)EndocytosisMovement

  • Where does the cell get the energy that it stores as ATP?FOOD!
