Energy and Life ATP Slide 2 ATP: Adenosine triphosphate. Has unstable phosphate bonds. Used by cells as an energy source for cellular activity. Produced mainly from the process of cellular respiration. Eukaryotic cells which require a lot of energy, will have a lot of mitochondria (site of cell resp.) Slide 3 Slide 4 Slide 5 HOW ATP DOES WORK TYPE OF WORK DESCRIPTION Mechanical Beating of cilia or flagella Muscular contraction Movement Transport Active transport Proton Pumps (H+ and Na+/K) Chemical Endergonic reactions (require energy) Polymerization (formation of polymers such as carbs, lipids, etc.)
