Also called adenosine diphosphate, adenosinediphosphoric acid.Biochemistry. an ester of adenosine and pyrophosphoric acid, C10H12N5O3H3P2O7, derived from ATP, and serving to transfer energy during glycolysis.
automatic data processing: the processing of data by computers or related devices, using techniques that reduce human intervention to a minimum.
Short for adenosine diphosphate. An organic compound that is composed of adenosine and two phosphate groups. With the addition of another phosphate group, it is converted to ATP for the storage of energy during cell metabolism. It then forms again, from ATP, when a phosphate group is removed to release energy. Chemical formula:C10H15N5O10P2.
