Energy that is produced in cells by a molecule called adenosine triphosphate is called ATP energy. ATP energy is essential for many living processes, including muscle contraction and nerve impulses. In order to provide c... More »

Energy is released from ATP by the breaking of the phosphate bond, states the University of Illinois at Chicago. Adenosine triphosphate, or ATP, consists of a sugar called ribose, the molecule adenine and three phosphate... More »

The ATP-PC energy system is the system by which the body fuels 10 to 20 seconds of intense exercise by using stored ATP, the high-energy molecule that fuels muscles, and then through phosphocreatine, which is quickly con... More »

Adenosine triphosphate, or ATP, is a molecule that stores all the energy required for cells to function. It is present in the nucleoplasm and cytoplasm of every cell. All of the energy needed to perform physiological ope... More »

Adenosine triphosphate, or ATP, is the transport molecule for chemical energy within cells. The energy stored in the phosphate bonds contained in ATP is used for a wide variety of metabolic functions, including muscle co... More »
