What is the role of ATP in an organism?
It provides and stores energy
Adenosine triphosphate or ATP for short is used for producing and storing energy. The three phosphates of a molecule of ATP has a very high energy level and can be detached to provide energy. When a phosphate is removed from a molecule of ATP, lots of energy is produces and the molecule loses a phosphate and the new name of the molecule is called adenosine diphosphate(ADP). Energy can be added to ADP to transform it back into ATP.
