Energy source adenosine triphosphate

Author: China Glutathione suppliers & manufacturers Release time: 2023-12-26 Column: Product News


Adenosine triphosphate (ATP) is a nucleotide that serves as the "molecular currency" for intracellular energy transfer. Its main function is to store and transfer energy. It can be said that ATP is the energy source for all life activities.


The way we obtain energy is of course through diet. However, due to the diversity of our diet, the human body cannot directly utilize the energy in the different compounds in food.

ATP plays a role called "molecular currency". It is the smallest unit of energy stored in organisms.

As its name implies: in the state of ATP, it carries three phosphates, and the chemical bonds between each phosphate store different levels of energy.

When a phosphate is "taken away" - the chemical bond between it and ATP is broken, the energy in the chemical bond is released.

Adenosine triphosphate is a coenzyme widely present in the body and is the main source of energy required by tissue cells in the body. The synthesis of proteins, fats, sugars and nucleotides requires ATP to participate. ATP is catalyzed by adenylyl cyclase to form cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP), which is a biologically active substance in cells and plays an important regulatory role in many metabolic processes of cells.

ATP provides energy for the synthesis of protein, glycogen, lecithin, urea, etc., promotes liver cell repair and regeneration, and enhances liver cell metabolic activity.

ATP is used clinically to improve body metabolism. It participates in the metabolism of fat, protein, sugar, nucleic acid and nucleotides in the body, and is also the main source of energy in the body. It is suitable for diseases caused by decreased cell enzymes after cell damage. Animal experimental studies have proven that ATP has a significant effect on the electrophysiology of cardiomyocytes. It can inhibit the influx of calcium ions in slow-responsive cells, block and prolong the forward conduction of the atrioventricular node reentrant circuit, and large doses can block the atrioventricular paraparasital circuit. The reentrant nature of the road has the effect of strengthening the vagus nerve.
