Escherichia coli K-12 substr. MG1655 Class: GO:0006200 (obsolete) - obsolete ATP catabolic process

Synonyms: ATP breakdown, ATP catabolism, ATP degradation

Definition: OBSOLETE. The chemical reactions and pathways resulting in the breakdown of ATP, adenosine 5'-triphosphate, a universally important coenzyme and enzyme regulator.

The reason for making this term obsolete is that it gets misused in cases where phosphates are simply being removed from a small molecule. We found no cases where these molecules genuinely underwent catabolism.
