The 2D structure of UTP
The 3D structure of UTP
UTP stands for uridine triphosphate. It is a nucleotide that is involved in RNA synthesis[1].
UTP has a molecular weight of 84.141086 g/mol and a molecular formula C9H15N2O15P3[2][3][4].
The formation of UTP

Uridine monophosphate reacts with ATP to for uridine diphosphate. The uridine diphosphate is converted to uridine triphosphate[5].
