MCAT Basics Podcast

MCAT Basics: ATP

This MCAT podcast covers adenosine triphosphate (ATP). I discuss: 1) ATP’s structure, 2) its thermodynamics and how it drives other biological reactions, 3) its production and regeneration, and 4) its function (including its role in the Na+/K+ pump, protein phosphorylation, and ATP binding cassette transporters).

Please email me if you have any comments or concerns: [email protected]

Thanks for listening!
