How much ATP is needed for normal daily activity in humans? (2 points)
4. What end product is the energy of foods converted in the catabolic pathways?
a) Totally quantity of ATP in an adult is approximately 0.10 mol/L. Approximately 100 to 150 mol/L of ATP are required daily, which means that each ATP molecule is recycled some 1000 to 1500 times per day. Basically, the human body turns over its weight in ATP daily.
b) The end product to which the energy of foods is converted in the catabolic pathways is adenosine triphosphate.
