Kindly anyone please explain this

1 peptide bond formation requires 4 phosphates but No ATP is required for actual peptide bond formation.""

Kindly anyone please explain this.

And please correct me if I am getting this wrong.


1 peptide bond synthesis need

Charging 2 ATP

Binding to A site 1 ATP

Translocation 1 ATP

So total 4 ATPs

But if qn is actual peptide bond synthesis it means that step alone which need no ATPs
