    The process, once ingested, creatine is converted into phosphocreatine via a creatine kinase reaction. The newly created phosphocreatine donates phosphate to adenosine diphosphate (ADP) to resynthesizes adenosine triphosphate (Mangus & Miller 28). The ability to have phosphocreatine is vitally important because it is considered the limiting factor in the energy level your body produces as it works in short and long-term intervals that creates muscle growth and the ability to do your playing or training at the highest levels. There are downsides to every substance, and like any other, creatine has its negative aspects. For some people, weight gain would be negative, and for others, it may be a positive. Creatine is most well known to add weight to your body, and the effect depends on what you want to do while taking creatine; this could be a negative side effect. Along with weight gain that may or may not beneficial for the…

  • ATP: What´s Cellular Respiration?

    The cellular respiration is when it process to break down the glucose and other food molecules then it is presence of the oxygen which make and release the energy to the cell. The cellular respiration take place in the mitochondria. The energy that is stored in the cellular respiration is when the body have a bond between the second and the third phosphate, which is in the group of the ATP. As the cellular respiration has an electron from the organic compound the glucose and the used energy can…

  • Why Do Athletes Use Creatine?

    in performance and yet no major harmful effects have been recorded even when taken in large doses. However, there is a concern with the possible effect on renal function, particularly in individuals with impaired renal capacity. Its use as a performance aid started booming after the 1992 Olympic Games in Barcelona when some athletes in track and field claimed creatine helped their performance. To understand the function of creatine and how it works requires basic knowledge of biochemistry.…

  • What Is Inorganic Phosphates?

    MIMICS OF DIPHOSPHATES Phosphate group: Phosphate is an inorganic salt of phosphoric acid or organophosphate is an ester of phosphoric acid. Organophosphate are important in ecology and biochemistry. Inorganic phosphates are used in industry and agriculture. Phosphates can condense to form pyrophosphates, at elevated temperature in solid state. Structure and chemical properties of phosphate group: The polyatomic phosphate ion consist of one phosphorous atom surrounded by four oxygen atom…

  • Essay On Skeletal Muscle

    which is known as the crossbridge. At first, this crossbridge is extended with adenosine diphosphate (ADP) and inorganic phosphate (Pi) attached to the myosin. When the crossbridge is formed, the myosin head bends, thus generating force and sliding the actin filament past the myosin. This is known as the power stroke in which myosin releases ADP and Pi. After they have been released, adenosine triphosphate (ATP) molecule attaches to the myosin. The myosin discharges the actin molecule when the…

  • Creatine Persuasive Speech

    Ladies, hope we have moved on from the paradigm of “lifting weight will make me manly” thing. For those who are new to this reality and are taking this as a shocker, it’s NOT. I have been lifting heavy for the past six months. Anyways, sticking to what we are here to discuss. Creatine. Ask your gym instructor or dietician on what Creatine does, and I bet the response would be it retains water in muscle and make you look bulky OR it gives you bigger muscle OR (to make it more irritating) they…

  • LI And Photosynthesis Essay

    converted to NADPH with the aid of the electrons and protons. Aside from photolysis, the electron transport chain is also responsible for the high proton concentration in the thylakoid lumen. Once the plastoquinone passes the excited electron to the b6f complex in electron transport chain, this complex pumps protons from outside the thylakoid into the thylakoid lumen. The build-up of protons in the thylakoid space generates the proton gradient across the thylakoid membrane. The proton gradient…

  • Literature Review On Creatine

    AGAT (Wyss and Kaddurah-Daouk, 2000). Other biological factors found to impact synthesis are thyroid hormone levels, growth hormone concentration, testosterone level, and dietary deficiency or adaptation (Fasting) (Volek and Kramer, 1997). 2.3 Creatine Function Viably the most regarded function of creatine is its role in anaerobic energy production, regulating cellular levels of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) in the muscle. In principle, ATP is the body’s molecular unit of currency facilitating…

  • The Gatorade: The Effectiveness Of Creatine

    The Gatorade Sports Science Institute article I have chosen to write about covers the topic of Creatine effectiveness. This article discusses many key points about creatine use, Including, effectiveness of the supplement, usage and dosage of creatine as well as what type of physical exertion best complements creatine’s functions and the adverse health effects caused by creatine. Creatine is a non-essential compound that the body can either synthesize via the pancreas, kidneys or liver, It can…

  • Citric Acid Cycle Research Paper

    The citric acid cycle generates energy from the oxidation of various fuel molecules to acetyl coenzyme A (acetyl CoA). Acetyl CoA undergoes several redox, hydration and decarboxylation reactions to produce carbon dioxide (CO2), reduced nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NADH), reduced flavin adenine dinucleotide (FADH2), adenosine triphosphate (ATP) and hydrogen ions. The citric acid cycle links glycolysis which produces pyruvate from glucose and oxidative phosphorylation which generates ATP…
