Adenosine Diphosphate (ADP) is a product of Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) metabolism. When a terminal phosphate group is cleaved from a molecule to produce energy to fuel cells, one ADP molecule and one phosphate ion is formed. These molecules can be reconstituted, through cellular respiration, to form ATP again. Cellular respiration takes place through aerobic or anaerobic pathways.
