The major form of energy used by cells in the body.
ATP) The energy storage molecule for the cell. ATP consists of an adenosine molecule bonded to three phosphate groups. Each phosphate bond contains energy; by breaking these bonds, the cell can get the energy it needs for chemical reactions. Cells build ATP during cell respiration, using the raw material of glucose.
universal energy-carrying molecule manufactured in all living cells as a means of capturing and storing energy; it consists of the purine base adenine, the sugar ribose & 3 linearly-arrayed phosphate groups
