Biology: Chemical Energy and ATP

TermDefinition
The chemical energy used for most cell processes is carried by ATP
All cells need chemical energy
Molecules in food store chemical energy in their bones
ATP transfer energy from the breakdown of food molecules to cell functions
Energy is released when a phosphate group is added
ADP is changed into ATP when a phosphate is added
Organism breakdown carbon-based most commonly broken down to make ATP
Fats store the most energy
80% of the energy in your body is fats
Fats have about 146 ATP from a triglyceride
Proteins are least likely to be broken down to make ATP
Amino acids not usually needed for energy
About the same of energy as a carbohydrate
A few types of organisms don't need sunlight and photosynthesis as a source of energy
Some organisms line in places that never get sunlight
Chemosynthesis has chemical energy is used to build carbon-based molecules
A molecule that transferred energy from the breakdown of food molecules to cell process is ATP
Is a lower-energy molecule that can be converted into ATP by the addition of a phosphate group is ADP
Is a process by which some organisms use chemical energy to make-storing carbon based molecules chemosynthesis
