EXISTING DATA ON ADENOSINE TRIPHOSPHATE (ATP) POOLS IN MICROBES ARE DEFICIENT FOR TWO REASONS: (i) incomplete extractions of ATP, and (ii) the failure to take into account that the adverse effects of extracting procedures on standard ATP exert analogous effects on the ATP released from bacterial cells. Methods for correcting observed yields and calculating ATP pools have been demonstrated. Three bacterial species were used in the studies on extraction of ATP: Escherichia coli, Mycobacterium… CONTINUE READING
