What is ATP?
A major energy-storing compound in both plant and animal cells
What does ATP stand for?
What is the role of ATP in organisms?
It stores energy.
List 3 examples of how ATP is used in a cell.
- 1. Active transport across cell membranes
- 2. Protein synthesis
- 3. Muscle contraction
Explain the carbon dioxide/oxygen cycle.
Oxygen is produced by plants and breathed in by animals. Animals produce carbon dioxide and it is used by plants.
