Comments This number is for mouse fibroblast cells, strain LS. This number is calculated from a value of 1.6 x 10^-11 moles of ATP/cell presented in the reference. This is only a biosynthetic cost. The maintenance energy cost was determined to be 2.9 x 10^-11 moles of ATP/cell. The total (biosynthesis + maintenance) is 27.3 trillion ATP/cell.
