Glycolysis Explained: How Glucose Breakdown Provides Energy

Glycolysis Explained: How Glucose Breakdown Provides Energy

Glycolysis, the “splitting of glucose”, is the breakdown of glucose or glycogen in order to provide ATP, which occurs in the liver and in the sarcoplasm of muscle cells. Glycolysis is the energy system that predominantly provides energy for higher-intensity activities lasting 15-90 seconds and it provides a net gain of 2-3 ATP. Glycolysis Explained: Splitting of...
ATP-CP Energy System

ATP-CP Energy System

The ATP-CP Energy System consists of two energy storage reservoirs and predominantly provides energy for high intensity activities lasting 1-10 seconds. The ATP-CP energy system consists of two energy storage reservoirs: ATP (adenosine triphosphate) Creatine Phosphate (CP) ATP The primary energy reservoir is ATP. ATP storage capacity in the body is 80g-100g and provides energy for...
Biological Energy Metabolism: ATP Production

Biological Energy Metabolism: ATP Production

Biological energy metabolism involves the synthesis and breakdown of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) to provide energy to do work. 3 energy systems are available. ATP (adenosine triphosphate) is the immediate source of energy for muscle cells. ATP consists of three parts: adenine ribose three linked phosphates Energy Metabolism: ATP Synthesis & Breakdown During ATP synthesis, an...
Bioenergetics: Biological Energy Transformation

Bioenergetics: Biological Energy Transformation

Bioenergetics can be defined as the study of biological energy transformation. Get more information on how the body transforms energy from foods. The 1st law of thermodynamics states that energy is not produced or created but just transferred around. In other words, the body doesn’t produce any energy but simply transfers the energy derived from...
