Biochemical Properties and Mechanism of ATP

biochemical properties of ATP

ATP contains two phosphoanhydride bonds (connecting the 3 phosphates together) and one phosphodiester bond (connecting a phosphate to the ribose ring). The pKa’s for the reactions H+ ATP3- —> ATP4- + H+ and HADP2- —> ADP3- + H+ are about 7.0. So the overall charges of ATP and ADP at …
