When the ATP molecule is hydrolysed, there will be ADP , Phosphate and portions of energy and this energy would be used for metabolism.
When the ADP is hydrolysed, there would be AMP, Phosphate & Energy but the AMP is transformed into rAMP which functions as a messanger.

@iBiology
1) show me any enzyme using ADP as energy source
2) what the hell is rAMP?

@elmyra67
ATP is used as energy source for most of energy-requiring reactions or to ensure one-way directionality.

Cis or trans? That's what matters.
