A molecule which consists of the nitrogenous base guanine linked to the sugar ribose and which has three phosphate groups attached to the 5th carbom atom of the ribose. GTP is a high-energy compound which serves as an energy source for many biochemical reactions. It is required for the formation of peptide bonds between amino acids during translation and is required for ribonucleic acid synthesis since it is a direct precursor.
