Question 8 of 40
In gluconeogenesis, organisms use ATP to make glucose, then in cellular respiration they break
down the glucose again to get energy. Why not just store the ATP? (Select all that apply.)
A. ATP does not have high-energy bonds.
B. ATP is not energy dense enough.
C. ATP only has energy after it is activated by glucose.
D. ATP only has energy when it is attached to glucose.
E. ATP is not stable enough.
F. ATP without a cofactor forms crystalline structures.
G. Using glucose directly to power enzymes is more efficient.
Feedback: Learning Objective: Analyze the reactions of cellular respiration in terms of net
energy input and output using critical thinking skills.
