ATP is used to carry energy for almost all energy-requiring chemical reactions in almost all cells. GTP can occasionally be used to carry energy, but it is more often used as a signaling molecule. GTP is an energy-rich, activated precursor for RNA synthesis that also plays important roles in several other cellular processes such as protein synthesis, protein localization, signal transduction, visual excitation, and hormone action.
