A rich energy-producing nucleotide (J. ECCLES, 1977, p. 233)

ATP's formula is C10 H16 N5 O13 P3 and is an energy source in many metabolic reactions in living beings

ATP acts as a neuro-transmissor. Its action can be affected by Adenosine triphosphatase which is "an enzyme splitting of phosphate from ATP and so producing energy"(lbid)
