Method Primary source [12] abstract: "[Investigators] measured ATP flow (using the luciferin/luciferase method) through these channels [VDAC, large aqueous pores through membranes] after reconstitution into planar phospholipid membranes."
Comments P.626 left column bottom paragraph: "In the absence of a membrane potential, VDAC1 adopts a high-conductance (450–580 pS in 100 mM KCl), anion-selective (1.7–1.9 anion-to-cation) state that is capable of passing millions of ATP molecules per second in vitro (primary source) and up to 100,000 ATP molecules per second under physiological conditions (primary source, ref 13)." Please note, in primary source, VDAC channels were isolated from Neurospora crassa [red bread mold] mitochondria
