ATP - what it is
The ATP molecule is composed of three components. At the centre is a sugar molecule, ribose (the same sugar that forms the basis of DNA).
Attached to one side of this is a base (a group consisting of linked rings of carbon and nitrogen atoms); in this case the base is adenine.
The other side of the sugar is attached to a string of phosphate groups. These phosphates are the key to the activity of ATP.
ATP consists of a base, in this case adenine (red), a ribose (magenta) and a phosphate chain (blue).
ATP - how it works
ATP works by losing the endmost phosphate group when instructed to do so by an enzyme. This reaction releases a lot of energy, which the
organism can then use to build proteins, contact muscles, etc. The reaction product is adenosine diphosphate (ADP), and the phosphate group
either ends up as orthophosphate (HPO4) or attached to another molecule (e.g. an alcohol). Even more energy can be extracted by
removing a second phosphate group to produce adenosine monophosphate (AMP).
When the organism is resting and energy is not immediately needed, the reverse reaction takes place and the phosphate group is reattached to
the molecule using energy obtained from food or sunlight. Thus the ATP molecule acts as a chemical 'battery', storing energy when it is not
needed, but able to release it instantly when the organism requires it.
