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].

The 2D structure of UTP[3]

The 3D structure of UTP[4]

The formation of UTP - uridine monophosphate reacts with ATP to for uridine diphosphate. The uridine diphosphate is converted to uridine triphosphate[5].
