Unformatted text preview: used to manufacture adenosine triphosphate (ATP) •  The energy released by the breakdown of ATP allows the cell to perform its work. Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) Stored chemical energy linking the energy- yielding & energy- requiring funcIons of all cells. Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) Breakdown of ATP → release of energy  ATP = “high energy molecule” = remove a phosphate, transfer energy   ADP + Pi + energy ATP  Energy “currency” How does your body produce ATP? Where does ATP come from? 1.  Very limited supply of ready- made ATP stored in muscle cells 2.  Breakdown of phosphocreaIne 3. Food (Cho, Fat, Protein) is broken down and the energy is used to manufacture ATP Energy System ConInuum Aerobic AND Anaerobic Energy •  Phosphagen system ATP- PC system •  Anaerobic respiraIon...
