Where Is Atp Made?


ATP (Adenosine-5'-triphosphate) is made in the mitochondria. It is a multi-functional nucleoside tri-phosphate used as a coenzyme in cells. It is used to transport chemical energy within cells to perform different metabolic processes.

1 NADH2 is equal to 3 ATPs and 1 FADH2 is equal to 2 ATPs. So 5 NADH2 = 15 ATPs and 3 FADH2 = 6 ATPs.and a TOTAL of 21 ATPs. And the significance of converting Pyruvic acid to Lactic

ATP is made in the mitochondria . It is a adenosine- dervied high energy nucleotide, used to transport energy to cells to perform different functions.
In order to know how ATP is made you may need to know a little about autotrophs. The reason is that ATP is made by autotrophs. An autotroph could be a plant, some kind of bacteria and some kinds of protists. You can find more information here: http://biochemistry.suite101.com/article.cfm/what_is_atp
