    Adenosine Triphosphate All living organisms require a continuous supply of energy to survive. At any one time there are millions of chemical reactions occurring simultaneously, with some reactions requiring energy and others releasing energy. The combination of simultaneous interrelated chemical reactions taking place at any given time in a cell at any given time is referred to as metabolism. Energy is needed in biological organisms for: - synthesis of chemicals - active transport

    Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) ATP stands for Adenosine Triphosphate and is the immediate supply of energy for biological processes. The ATP consists of an organic nitrogenous base, Adenosine, which is one of the four bases found in a DNA strand, it also consists of a ribose sugar with three phosphates joined by high energy bonds. The energy itself is stored in the form of high-energy chemical bonds; this energy is released on hydrolysis, i.e. by the reaction with water, in a similar way peptide

    ATP is universal form of free energy in all living organisms and is an energy coupling agent (Tymoczko et al. 2013. p. 250). When ATP is hydrolyzed to produce adenosine diphosphate (ADP) and orthophosphate (Pi), or to adenosine monophosphate (AMP) and Pi, free energy is liberated. This free energy can then be utilized for endergonic reactions that need an input of free energy in order to occur. The recycling of ATP/ADP is critical to for energy exchange in living organisms. ATP is critical in photosynthesis

    energy systems and their use in sport activities ATP stands for Adenosine triphosphate. It is an important question in sports training because all energy production is powered by this. The training programs that are designed for you or others will target you’re ability to produce energy for power and endurance. ATP is often referred to as the energy currency of life. The body’s cells use a special form of energy called adenosine triphosphate to power almost all their activities, such as muscle contraction

    horizontal gel electrophoresis platform and covered with pH > 12 alkaline solution for 20 min without electrophoresis[15]. The slide were then neutralized and stained with 50 µl of 20 µg /ml ethidium promide. This cytotoxicity method of cell growth following to pro-mutagen exposure was detected under cytocharasin B and frequency binuclear cells. Fairbrain and co-workers reported the advantage of this technique include: i) high sensitivity for detecting low levels of DNA damage; ii) ability to detect

    The process of photosynthesis takes place in the chloroplasts in the eukaryotes and in the prokaryotes, it takes place in the cytoplasm whereas the process of respiration occurs in the mitochondria in the eukaryotes and it occurs in the cytoplasm in the prokaryotes. In both photosynthesis and respiration, energy has to be generated in both the prokaryotes and the eukaryotes. Photosynthesis is an endothermic process taking place in the chloroplast in most of the eukaryotes and prokaryotes while the

    Fermentation of Apple Cider “Science knows no country, because knowledge belongs to humanity, and is the torch which illuminates the world. Science is the highest personification of the nation because that nation will remain the first which carries the furthest the works of thought and intelligence.” – Louis Pasteur, Great French Scientist (1822-1892). Fermentation is chemical changes in organic substances produced by the action of enzymes. This general definition includes virtually all

    The muscular system is an organ system consisting of skeletal, smooth and cardiac muscles. It permits movement of the body, maintains posture, and circulates blood throughout the body. The muscular system in vertebrates is controlled through the nervous system, although some muscles can be completely autonomous. Together with the skeletal system it forms the musculoskeletal system, which is responsible for movement of the human body. Muscles There are three distinct types of muscles: skeletal muscles

    micrometers long and one to .5 micrometers wide. They main function is to provide energy for cell activities. They house the respiratory enzymes that convert oxygen and the products of fat, carbohydrate, and protein metabolism into adenosine triphosphate (ATP) and guanosine triphosphate (GTP), chemicals that have high-energy bonds. They are hollow all except for a folded line of matter that contains the ribonucleic acid (RNA) or deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) of the cell. Mitochondrion make use of a process

    Hypothesis: Increasing the number of yeast cells speeds up the rate of ATP production if sugar concentration is held at a constant concentration. Argument in support of the hypothesis: With an increase in the number of yeast cells, the rate of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) production-in moles of ATP for every hour is affected greatly even when the sugar concentration is constant. When the number of yeast cells grows, more cells are able to use the sugar for energy which causes the ATP production to go
