ATP :)

Post by biobaby » Wed Nov 30, 2005 1:40 am

1. How does ATP store energy?

2. How can ADP be 'recycled' to form ATP again?

3. How do proteins in your cells access the energy stored in ATP?



4. Phosphate groups in ATP repel each other because they have negative charges.
What charge might be present in the ATP binding site of proteins to attract another ATP molecule?

1 & 2- This has been treated extensively recently, use the search tool.

4- The answer is implied in your question...

3- A little more tricky, you will need to read a bit about enzymatic catalysis. But you should be able to figure it out, mostly if you have answered 1&2

No problem, we were all beginners on the forum. I remember when i first joined and i was worried nobody will understand my english because i am bad at spelling. I am still bad and some may not understand me, but i do my best every day
