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.

NEW YORK, April 27, 2015--Researchers at NYU Langone Medical Center have discovered that mitochondria, the major energy source for most cells, also play an important role in stem cell development, a purpose notably distinct from the tiny organelle's traditional job as the cell's main source of the adenosine triphosphate (ATP) energy needed for routine cell metabolism.
"The commercial use of DNP is as a pesticide or herbicide and, in 2009, 11 workers in a Chinese chemical factory - plus nine of their relatives - contracted DNP poisoning, their skins turned yellow or even black and two died." The chemical expert said DNP reduces the production of ATP - adenosine triphosphate - the molecule that transports energy within cells.
