Primary Source Dawes, Edwin A. Microbial Energetics. Chapman and Hall: New York, NY. 1986. It appears to be based on a table from a chapter of Microbial Biochemistry - see Stouthamer, A.H.

Method From column A in table: (ATP requirements for Protein)/(ATP requirements for protein + Polysaccharide + lipid + RNA + DNA + mRNA turnover)=(ATP requirements for Protein)/(ATP requirements for protein + ATP for all the rest) 19.14/(19.14+6.56)=0.745
Comments For table: After consulting primary sources, it appears that for columns E and F, and possibly G, the energy requirement for mRNA turnover was already included in the RNA cost, and so has been counted twice in this table. This would reduce the "Total" by 1.39 mmol of ATP for these columns, which would cause a very slight change in Yatp. See BNID 105778
