ATP (adenosine triphosphate) is a high energy molecule that is hydrolysed to provide energy for many reactions within the mammalian body. ATP is synthesised in the Mitochondria of a cell, in a process called oxidative phosphorylation, in what is called the electron transfer chain. ATP is a very important source of energy for many functions. An example is it's usage in glycolysis, where glucose is converted to pyruvate.
