How Does Atp Store and Release Energy?


ATP is an abbreviation for adenoside-tri-phosphate. Energy is stored in the phosphates that are bound to the sugar component, by high-energy bonds. Energy is released when the bond breaks and the last phosphate is lost, converting it to ADP, or adenoside-di-phosphate.
