ATP

 (ā′tē′pē′)
n.
A nucleotide, C10H16N5O13P3, that is composed of adenosine and three phosphate groups and releases energy when hydrolyzed to ADP. It is present in all cells, where it is used to store and transport energy needed for biochemical reactions.

[a(denosine) t(ri)p(hosphate).]

ATP

n
(Biochemistry) adenosine triphosphate; 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. Formula: C10H16N5O13P3. Also called: ATPase

1. (Aeronautics) advanced turboprop
2. (Tennis) Association of Tennis Professionals
3. (Railways) automatic train protection: a safety system which automatically prevents a train from passing through a stop signal

ATP

adenosine triphosphate: a nucleotide that is the primary source of energy in all living cells because of its function in donating a phosphate group during biochemical activities; composed of adenosine, ribose, and three phosphate groups and formed by enzymatic reaction from adenosine diphosphate and an orthophosphate. Compare ADP.

ATP

(ā′tē′pē′)
Short for adenosine triphosphate. An organic compound, C10H16N5O13P3, that is composed of adenosine and three phosphate groups. It serves as a source of energy for many metabolic processes. ATP releases energy when it is broken down into ADP by hydrolysis during cell metabolism.

The discrete quantity of entropic energy that a quantum of space assumes when it becomes electron depends on the features of the region in exam, on the situation existing in that particular region of ATPS (namely on the type of interaction, "potential" to which the region of ATPS is subjected).
the ambient situation existing in ATPS represented by the Coulomb field created by a proton, can be seen as the result of the interaction of entropic energy, given by one of the eigenvalues of the energetic spectrum [E.
In ATPS endowed with a granular, quantized structure, every sub-atomic particle can be seen as the result of the interaction of energy (in the "entropy-state") with one or more QS.
In this model based on ATPS, one can assume that a quantum of space changes its energy from the "non-entropy-state" to the "entropy-state," becoming a quantum of matter, as a consequence of the vibration at a certain appropriate frequency (lower than the basic one).
