ATP (Adenosine triphosphate) is the energy currency in living organisms. It is produced at the end of respiration and is produced in the mitochondria.

ATP is generated from ADP and phosphate ions by a complex set of processes occurring in the cell. ATP is manufactured as a result of several cell processes including fermentation, respiration and photosynthesis.
