Table: Types and functions of Nucleotides
Nucleotides (abbreviation)Nucleotidesfunction
AMPAdenosine monophosphateIt forms basic unit of RNA
ADPAdenosine diphosphateIt stores energy in  the phosphate molecule. Dissociation of one phosphate molecule releases 8Kcal of energy.
ATPAdenosine triphosphateIt is a high-energy molecule.Dissociation of each phosphate molecule releases 8k cal. Of energy.
FADFlavin adenine dinucleotideIt is also high energy molecule.on breakdown it gives rise to two ATP molecules.
NADNicotinamide adenine dinucleotideAct as a Co-enzyme of an oxidizing enzyme.
NADPNicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphateIt is also a high energy molecule .On dissociation it gives rise of three ATP molecules.
