adenosine 5'-triphosphate

(redirected from adenosine 5-triphosphate)

a·den·o·sine 5'-tri·phos·phate (ATP),

(ă-den'ō-sēn trī-fos'fāt),
Adenosine with triphosphoric acid esterified at its 5' position; immediate precursor of adenine nucleotides in RNA; the primary energy currency of a cell.

adenosine triphosphate

An adenosine with 3 high-energy phosphates, which is required for RNA synthesis and present in all living cells; ATP is a key energy source which drives many metabolic processes, including those involving motor proteins, movement of molecules against concentration gradients and the synthesis of proteins, nucleic acids and other molecules.
