ATP is the phosphorylated form of the nucleoside Adenosine.

Adenosine is a ribose sugar and the base Adenine.


In order to make ATP, you just have to add 3 phosporic acid groups (one bond is a phospho-ester, the other bonds are phophoanhydrides).

The result of the phosphorylation is ATP, Adenosine Triphosphate.
