Computerized molecular models of adenosine triphosphate, adenosine tri-arsenate and adenosine trivanadate have been generated using the molecular mechanics technique. The analysis of structural parameters indicated that, at least theoretically, adenosine triarsenate is a realistic candidate for replacement of adenosine triphosphate in biochemical pathways. On the contrary, the structural arrangement of the inorganic segment of adenosine trivanadate does not seem to be capable of withstanding a swift hydrolytical splitting in aqueous milieu. It was shown that the universal force field as implemented in Gaussian software packages is an appropriate tool for the optimization of less-common bioactive compositions.
