Biosynthesis of proteins from amino acids is an energy driven condensation process (ÄH = + 10
kJ/mol) requiring energy input in the form of ATP. In an experiment, 0.4 mol of amino acids
reacted to give a polypeptide and some ATP was consumed.
a) explain how biosynthesis of proteins is energy-coupled to the hydrolysis of ATP.
b) calculate the amount of ATP (in moles) used in the experiment if the amount of dissipated heat
was 14.3 kJ.
