ATP ATP – Adenosine Triphosphate - Adenine, a nucleotide found in DNA and RNA. Contains three phosphate groups connected to each other in sequence The bonds can be broken and release energy When the terminal phosphate bond is broken, a molecule of inorganic phosphate (P i ) and a molecule of adenosine diphosphate are formed ATP -> ADP + (P i ) This generates free energy, which can be used by the cell to do work

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
