How does ATP store energy?


Adenosine triphosphate (ATP) stores energy by converting its chemical bond to a different form ADP. ADP is the uncharged form. By simply binding to a third phosphate you have a charged molecule again. You can find more information here: http://www. biologyinmotion. com/atp/index. html
Q&A Related to "How does ATP store energy?"
Energy is stored in ATP just like a battery when a cell has energy available, it can store small amounts of it by adding a phosphate group to ADP molecules.
ATP is a chemical substance that the cell uses to store energy(it stores energy in the bonds between phosphates groups, and releases it at hidrolysis)..
ATP is produced by several different metabolic pathways, each using a different energy source. Most ATP is generated by cellular respiration, which takes place inside the mitochondria
The two bonds between the three phosphate groups are high-energy
