...three distinct sections that are coloured red, green and yellow. The nitrogenous base adenine (red) is the same type of molecule used in the DNA that binds thymine (A-T). As a part of ATP it is bound to the sugar ribose (green) that has three weakly linked (yellow) phosphate groups.

ATP is synthesized by glucose catabolism (glucose breakdown). ATP has its energy stored in the covalent bonds attaching the phosphate groups. These "high energy bonds" are broken through a process called hydrolysis which gives off energy and leaves ...
