ATP model is an adenosine-derived nucleotide, C10H16N5O13P3, that contains high-energy phosphate bonds and is used to transport energy to cells for biochemical processes, including muscle contraction and enzymatic metabolism, through its hydrolysis to ADP. ATP is hydrolyzed to AMP when it is incorporated into DNA or RNA.
It is also a nucleotide found in the mitochondria of all plant and animal cells. It is the major source of energy for cellular reactions, this energy being released during its conversion to ADP.

ATP is a common "energy currency" in all living organisms. The organism burns food, and stores some of the energy from the "burning" in the bonds of the ATP molecule. Reactions of the ATP that lead to bonds storing less energy are used to supply energy to other reactions in the organism.
