ADP-ATP Unsolved Mystery

  1. Apr 22, 2014 #1
    I read an article a long time ago and it mentioned a mystery in how we create and use energy. It listed the cycle of ADP to ATP, all the steps, but for one of those steps it said something like in practice this happens much faster than what we know to actually be possible.

    This stood out to me because I remember this cycle from high school being like a basic thing to memorize, and did not at all remember that one of the steps was impossible.

    Now I'm searching for this detail again, but every explanation of ADP-ATP on the web I've found so far reads like how I remember it from high school. Anyone have any idea what that mysterious step is? I keep searching and nothing yet.

    Also I'm not sure what topic to post this under...
    Thank you!
