ATP/ADP ratio under different growth conditions in exponential growth range

Range 5.6-10.3 Unitless
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 15251(1-2):538-43. Table 1 Table - link PubMed ID9492330
Method Growth was performed in supplemented M9 medium with glycerol and electron transfer acceptors as described in ref. In the logarithmic growth phase, samples were drawn and the bacteria were assayed for ATP and ADP. Pi was taken as 20 umol/g dry cells for growth under oxic and anoxic conditions corresponding to 10 mM.
Comments Low value for growth on (Glycerol + nitrate) substrate, High value for growth on (Glycerol + O2) substrate.
