Intracellular diffusive transport of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) is critical to cellular metabolism. Physical models predict that diffusion coefficients (D) of small molecules are functions of temperature and viscosity of the diffusive environment. Therefore, changes in body temperature, commonly experienced by poikilotherms, are expected to result in changes in the rate of intracellular ATP transport. However, it has been postulated that changes in the electrical charge of ATP may influence… CONTINUE READING
