Cost of amino-acid export from lysosome back to cytoplasm

Range ~1 ~P (ATP)/3-4 amino acids
Organism Metazoa animals
Reference Michael Lynch and Georgi K. Marinov, The bioenergetic costs of a gene, PNAS 2015 doi: 10.1073/pnas.1514974112 link Supplementary Materials p.6 left column top paragraph
Comments Supplementary Materials p.5 right column bottom paragraph:"Degradation in a lysosome may cost essentially nothing, but amino-acid export back to the cytoplasm consumes ~1 ATP for every 3 to 4 amino acids. Taking all of these observations together, it appears that ~0.25 to 1.0 ATPs are required for the recycling of each amino acid."
