What is released when ATP is changed to ADP and what does the cell do with the substance that is released?
Write the equation that shows how ADP is changed into ATP?
The equation that shows how ADP is changed into ATP is: ATP + H2O ---- ADP + P. P represents the third phosphate group. ...

What is the function of ADP molecules in living cells?
ADP is the product of ATP-released energy. When the ATP bond is broken, ADP is released to another metabolic reaction that requires it. ...

How does ATP transfer energy from exergonic to endergonic reactions in the cell?
Energy is usually released from the ATP molecule to do work in the cell by a reaction that removes one of the phosphate- oxygen groups, leaving adenosine disphosphate (ADP). When the ATP converts to ADP, the ATP is said to be spent. Then the ADP is usually immediately recycled in mitochondria where it is recharged and comes out again as ATP. ...

What produces chemical energy ATP that can power the cell?
Phosphorylation of ADP produces ATP by storinh chemical energy in the phosphate bond. This ATP is converted to ADP to power the cell. ...
Asked in Genetics
Why is the ATP concentration in a cell about 10 times the concentration of ADP?
The ATP concentration in a cell is about ten times the concentration of ADP because ATP is the immediate energy currency of the cell. It donates energy by means of its terminal phosphate group, which is easily transferred to an acceptor molecule. ATP is formed by the phosphorylation of ADP, an endergonic process that requires an input of energy. So ATP is much more needed in the cell, and the amounts of ADP are always being transferred to ATP for the use...
What is ADP ATP ratio?
it is the ratio of the ADP and ATP produced in a cell, based on the viable conditions of the cell. A proliferating cell produces more ATP than ADP. This even inlcudes cancerous cells that are proliferating out of contorl. Meanwhile, cells that are undergoing apoptosis, or natural programmed cell death, or cells that are undergoing necrosis, or death induced by harsh environmental factors, have more ADP compared to ATP because the cell is not proudcing ATP while hydrolyzing the remaining ATP...
