ATP "molecular machine" highlighted at OSTI's Information Bridge

Called a “molecular machine,” ATP, or adenosine triphosphate, helps churn
energy for all living creatures. In fact, a hard-working human can convert
almost a ton of ATP daily (see Adenosine
Triphosphate: The Energy Currency of Life
). Research examining ATP synthase,
the enzyme responsible for synthesizing ATP, netted Paul
D. Boyer
a share of the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1997. At OSTI's Information
Bridge
, you can read related research on ATP, by either performing a search or
by viewing the ATP featured
documents
list. Information Bridge provides free public access to full-text documents and bibliographic citations of U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) research report literature. Information Bridge contains
documents and citations in physics, chemistry, materials, biology, environmental sciences, energy technologies, engineering, computer and information science, renewable energy, and other topics of interest related to DOE's mission.
