Method Calculated according to cell dry weight of 0.28pg (BNID 102242). Table gives 1.05mmol/g dry weight. 0.00105(mole/gram)*6e23(ATP/mole)*0.28e-12(g/cell)=1.76e+7 ATP/cell
Comments For number of ATP to make cell see BNID 101984. Please see also bion of the month. Note- Value of ~7.2e7 ATP/DNA/Cell given at link
