Lecture no. 11 from the course: Biochemistry and Molecular Biology: How Life Works
Taught by Professor Kevin Ahern | 32 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course
Adenosine triphosphate (ATP) is the fuel that powers many processes in living cells. Every day we make and break down our own body weight in ATP. Focus on the chemical reactions behind this impressive energy conversion system, which is governed by the Gibbs free energy equation. These reactions, which can proceed either forward or backward, are among the most important in biochemistry.
