Hi guys.
So as part of my biology work is to research on ATP before we learn it in class and one question was:

What two processes are required to resynthesise ATP ?

I cant find a straight forward / specific answer on this on the internet and it inst in my textbook
I would really appreicate if someone could help me out here and any help will be appreciated. Thanks in advance 😀

Photophosphorylation within photosynthesis, Oxidative Phosphorylation within respiration or Substrate-level phosphorylation (I think).

Thanks so much,
Can you also help me with this one;
What are the key features if ATP which make it an excellent source of energy for cellular reactions ??

Um...I guess it's to do with the idea that it's a high energy compound. Also that it can be easily broken down and then 're-built' through condensation/hydrolysis reactions.

Well there are several features:
  • It provides an immediate, manageable burst of energy
  • It releases energy in a single step reaction (weak phosphate bond)
  • It can be recycled continuously
  • It is a universal molecule in all metabolic reactions
  • It easily diffuses through the cell cytoplasm and organelle matrices

source of energy

 phosphate(s) can be removed by hydrolysis

 to release energy

 energy released for reactions e.g. active transport

 ADP can attach a phosphate (forming ATP) during respiration / photosynthesis

 energy released in small ‘packets’ to prevent cell damage
