Adenosine phosphate compounds

Last reviewed dd mmm yyyy. Last edited dd mmm yyyy

Authoring team

Adenosine phosphate compounds are vitally important to the cell as:

  • energy stores; the energy held within ATP > ADP > AMP
  • secondary messengers e.g. cAMP

There is a great deal of interconversion between the different compounds.

ATP can be formed directly by substrate-level coupling, or indirectly via the electron transfer chain and oxidative phosphorylation.
