The formation of large amounts of inorganic pyrophosphate as a by-product of numerous synthetic reactions in nearly all living tissues makes the metabolic reactions of this compound of interest. Rapid hydrolysis to orthophosphate is presumed to be the fate of most inorganic pyrophosphate but the possibility of the conservation and utilization of some of the… CONTINUE READING
