||Primary source: Analyses were conducted with 1 ml of reagent in fluorometer tubes (8 X 100 mm) plus neutralized HClO4 extract equivalent to the weight of bacteria indicated. Readings were
made before and after addition of the last enzyme listed. The incubation time refers to this interval. For ATP measurement: Buffer Imidazole-acetate, 200 mM, pH 7.0. Enzyme Glucose-6-P dehydrogenase, 0.25 µg/ml plus hexokinase, 2 µg/ml. Other components TPN+, 30 µM glucose, 100 µM MgCl2,5 mM EDTA, 200 µM. Bacterial equivalent, 100 µg dry weight. Incubation
time 3 min.
||Table 5 in primary source gives values of 4.1 and 4.35 µmoles ATP/g dry weight of E. coli strains K18.104.22.168c and Hfr 139, respectively. For ATP conc. of 9.6mM in glucose-fed, exponentially growing E. coli see BNID 104673
