Adenosine triphosphate (ATP) is a complex organic chemical that pairteecipates in mony processes. Foond in aw forms o life, ATP is eften referred tae as the "molecular unit o siller" o intracellular energy transfer.[1] Whan consumed in metabolic processes, it converts tae either the di- or monophosphates, respectively ADP an AMP. Ither processes regenerate ATP sic that the human bouk recycles its awn bouk wecht equivalent in ATP ilk day.[2] It is an aa a precursor tsr DNA an RNA.

Frae the perspective o biochemistry, ATP is clessifee'd as a nucleoside triphosphate, that indicates that it consists o three components, a nitrogenous base (adenine), the succar ribose, an the triphosphate. It is uised in cells as a coenzyme.
