Comments P.98 left column top paragraph: "Above, [investigators] reasoned about the effect of S [surface area] and V [volume] on the rate of glucose uptake, that is, the raw material for the cell’s energy supply. They are also intimately related to the cell’s rate of ATP demand. But how large is this demand and how much membrane space is needed to supply it? [They] define R[ATP]-demand as the number of ATP molecules per unit time, per unit cell volume, that must be produced in order for a cell to sustain a growth rate λ. The amount of ATP, αB, needed to produce E. coli biomass aerobically on glucose is roughly 18 billion ATP molecules per femtoliter of cell volume (primary sources) (Table S1A)." See BNID 101983
