  • Analysis is made of the mechanisms that control the intracellular ATP level. The balance between energy production and expenditure determines the energy charge of the cell and the ratio of [ATP] to the adenylate pool. The absolute ATP concentration is determined by the adenylate pool, which, in its turn, depends on the balance between the rates of AMP synthesis and degradation. Experimental data are discussed that demonstrate an increase in the adenylate pool in response to activation of energy… CONTINUE READING
