what is atp synthase?

what does it do?


Answer by  surya (21)

Adenosine TriPhosphate (ATP) is one of the most important enzymes needed for every oraganism as it is the energy producer in cells. An ATP synthase is an enzyme that synthesizes ATP from adenosine diphosphate (ADP) and other inorganic phosphates by using energy. ATP synthase uses energy in the form protons. Without this energy formation will get reduced.

ATP synthase is an enzyme that is helps produce ATP from ADP, therefore is important in energy production that is necessary to each living cell. Atp synthase can be found in plants, animals and humans, but in different forms .For example , in humans there is a variety of human genes that encode components of ATP synthase.

ATP synthase is a generic term for any enzyme in body cells that produce ATP by combining ADP with an inorganic phosphate. The best understood member of this class of enzyme are the ones in the mitochondria, the powerhouses of your cells. ATP, incidentally, is the energy currency used by your cells to do all of their work.


Answer by  HH (404)

ATP synthase is a protein complex located in the membrane of cells. It consists of a channel and a rotating unit that points to the inside of the cell. Cells that perform respiration will build up a proton gradient (H+) over the membrane with more protons outside the cells. The flow of the protons back drives ATP-synthase to generate ATP.

It is an enzyme that every cell in the body has. It transforms ADP and a Phosphate into ATP. The energy for this process comes from the electron transport chain creating a ion gradient.


Answer by  LeheckaG (1826)

ATP synthase is (any) enzyme which synthesizes (ATP) adenosine triphosphate from (ADP) adenosine diphosphate and inorganic phosphate using some energy. ATP synthase ADP + Pi → ATP enzyme ATP synthase's significance is because (ATP) adenosine 5'-(tetrahydrogen triphosphate) is the principal carrier of intracellular energy transfer and recycled back as ADP.
