Value -2870 kJ/mol glucose
Organism Bacteria Escherichia coli
Reference Tran QH, Unden G. Changes in the proton potential and the cellular energetics of Escherichia coli during growth by aerobic and anaerobic respiration or by fermentation. Eur J Biochem. 1998 Jan 15 251(1-2): p. 538 left column top paragraphPubMed ID9492330
Comments P.538 left column top paragraph: "Facultative anaerobes such as Escherichia coli are capable of growth both under oxic and anoxic conditions. The energetics and the ATP yields vary considerably for both conditions (Unden and Bongaerts, 1997). The free energy for glucose oxidation with O2 (ΔG'0= -2870 kJ/mol glucose) exceeds that for glucose fermentation (ΔG'0= -218 kJ/mol glucose)."
