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.
