Does ATP derive from a DNA or RNA nucleotide ?Watch
Nucleoside= nitrogenous base + 5 carbon sugar
Nucleotide= nitrogenous base + 5 carbon sugar + phosphate group
ATP is a type of nucleoside triphosphate. It is said to be a derivative because it contains the nitrogenous base Adenine. Adenine along with the 5 carbon sugar forms the nucleoside of adenosine.
It has adenosine in common with RNA but is not a direct derivative because ATP is not a nucleic acid.
DNA contains deoxyadenosine so it does not have that in common with ATP.
Wikipedia: In biochemistry and molecular biology, a nucleoside triphosphate (NTP) is a molecule containing a nucleoside bound to three phosphate groups. It is thus one type ofnucleotide. Nucleoside triphosphates are necessary for life, as they provide the building blocks of nucleic acids (DNA and RNA) and have many other roles in cell metabolism and regulation. NTPs generally provide energy and phosphate groups for phosphorylation. E.g. ATP.
