Adenosine triphosphate, found in all cells, is one of the most important molecules known to man. Its composition is complex which makes it a helpful molecule. Adenosine Triphosphate is an organic compound and hydrotrope that provides energy to drive many processes in living cells, e.g., muscle contraction, nerve impulse propagation, condensate dissolution, and chemical synthesis. This molecule is pretty much summed up to be essential to molecules, it gives them their energy source to function. It helps break down food molecules and it also releases it to fuel other cellular processes. The Adenosine triphosphate (ATP) molecule is the nucleotide known in biochemistry as the "molecular currency" of intracellular energy transfer; that is, ATP can store and transport chemical energy within cells. ATP also plays an important role in the synthesis of nucleic acids.
