Biology - The ADP/ATP system

The ADP/ATP system

The ADP/ATP system

The energy set free in the process of respiration (respiratory energy) is
used to bond free inorganic phosphate groups to adenosine diphosphate [1]
(ADP) molecules to form adenosine triphosphate [2] (ATP) molecules. The
bond is a high energy bond; when broken by enzyme activity, it releases the
same amount of energy as was required to make the bond in the first place.
The detached phosphate group and the resulting ADP molecule are available
for reuse.
