    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.
