Provide 4 functions of ATP in muscle and nervous systems?

I can give a few.
ATP is an energy source, so in muscle it allows the cross bridge cycle to occur which is essentially the hydrolysing of ATP to ADP and inorganic phosphate followed by a series of events so it allows contraction of the muscle.
Nervous system requires ATP in order to transport ions like Na+ and K+ across the membrane through a transporter.
