The two methods of forming ATP are the following:
1. Oxidative Phosphorylation: ATP synthesis driven by electron transfer to oxygen.
2. Photophosphorylation: ATP synthesis driven by light.
Oxidative phosphorylation: is the final stage of aerobic cellular respiration, in which electrons flow from catabolic intermediates to O2, yielding energy for the generation of ATP from ADP and Pi.
Photophosphorylation: is the means by which ...
The two methods of forming adenosine triphosphate are identified and contrasted and the benefits of each are provided.
