Adenosine 5’-diphosphate disodium salt

CAS NO: 638-48-8


Adenosine 5’-diphosphate (ADP) is a nucleotide that consists of adenosine and two phosphate groups. It plays a crucial role in cellular energy metabolism as a precursor to adenosine triphosphate (ATP). ATP is the primary energy molecule in cells, and ADP can be converted back to ATP through the addition of a phosphate group in a process called phosphorylation. This conversion allows cells to store and release energy as needed. The disodium salt form of ADP refers to the presence of two sodium ions associated with the ADP molecule.
