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 »

The mitochondria inside a cell produces ATP, or adenosine triphosphate. Cellular respiration is responsible for ATP production, a process in which ATP production occurs after biochemical energy from nutrients is converte... More »

ATP synthase is an enzyme that plays a vital role in the addition of a phosphate to ADP, or adenosine diphosphate, to form ATP, or adenosine triphosphate. The enzyme is located within the mitochondria of a cell, where th... 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 » Science Chemistry Organic Chemistry

An adenosine triphosphate molecule stores energy that is released and used by energy-consuming reactions, such as muscle contraction, transmission of nerve impulses and formation of other molecules. ATP is found in cells... More »

According to the Fayette County Public Schools, the breakdown of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) in a chemical reaction with water provides energy for skeletal muscles to contract. Since the amount of ATP stored in muscles ... More » Science Human Anatomy Muscles
