questions regarding atp and adp

Post by hebrewhammer » Sun Mar 26, 2006 9:10 pm

I've been searching all day and can't find the answers to these questions. Sorry if this has been asked somewhere already.

Wanted to know:
number of ribose, and adenine molecules in atp and adp. The number of phosphate groups in atp and adp, what is formed when atp loses a phosphoric acid molecule, and what is formed when adp gains a phosphoric acid molecule. Answers for any of these would be greatly appreciated.

Alright I think I found everything but the number of ribose in adp and number of adenine in adp.

first of all, adp has NOTHING to do with what your takling about. ADP is the phosphate grouping cell used in DNA and nitrogen bonds! DE DE DE!

to clarify, dna contains base pairs, one of which is adenine.

adp is adenine linked to two phosphate(PO4) groups.

hi,

ATP is adenosine-tri-phosphate, so there is one molecule ribose connected to one adenine (=adenosine) connected to 3 (tri-) prosphate-groups

look here, and maybe the next time you could try google...
