💊 Profile

Adenosine triphosphate (ATP) is an endogenous adenine nucleotide with a fundamental role in cellular energy transformation; ATP is hydrolysed to adenosine diphosphate (ADP) releasing energy stored in phosphate bonds. In addition, extracellular ATP influences many biological processes. ATP is a vasodilator that has been used in varied disorders. The sodium and disodium salts have been used in cerebral and peripheral vascular disorders and also for the treatment of supraventricular tachycardias, although adenosine is the form generally used as an antiarrhythmic. ATP has also been investigated for use in cachexia in patients with cancer.
