Concentration of GTP, CTP, and UTP in Xenopus laevis eggs

Value 0.4 mM Range: 0.2-0.6 mM
Organism African clawed frog Xenopus laevis
Reference Woodland HR, Pestell RQ. Determination of the nucleoside triphosphate contents of eggs and oocytes of Xenopus laevis. Biochem J. 1972 Apr127(3):597-605. p.605 left column 2nd paragraphPubMed ID4672799
Comments "If we assume that an egg represents 1 µl of solution (this actually is its total volume), then the concentration of ATP is 0.6-1 mM and those of the other ribonucleotides are 0.2-0.6mM. This is roughly the concentration range found in other cells."
