Effect of Strontium Ion on the Hydrolysis of ATP

  • Keiji Shikama


In cellular energy transformations, the ATP-ADP cycle plays a central role by coupling both with energy-yielding reactions, e.g., oxidative phosphorylation in mitochondria and photosynthetic phosphorylation in chloroplasts, as well as with energy-requiring reactions including active transport, muscular contraction, and biosynthesis.
