Question

If it costs 10.5 kcal/mol to “run” a particular cation ATPase “pump”, then what is the minimum concentration of ATP required to provide just enough energy to run this ATPase? In other words, what does the concentration of ATP need to be so that the free energy of ATP hydrolysis is -10.5 kcal/mol. Report your answer to the nearest tenth of a mM, and assume that [\Delta] ΔG°' is -7.3 kcal/mol, the concentration of Pi is 3.4 mM, the concentration of ADP is 1 mM, the pH is 7.2, and that the temperature is 37 °C.

Answer #1

Therefore the free energy change is given by:

DG = DG^{0} + RTln([ADP][Pi]/[ATP])

DG= change in free energy

DG^{0}= standard free energy change

R= 2=gas constant

T=temperature in kelvin=273 + t in celsius

pi= 3.4 mM

Therefore, putting all values in formula,

-10.5= (-7.3) + 2*310 ln (0.9*3.4 /x)

-10.5= -7.3 + 620 ln (3.06/x)

-10.5+7.3 = 620 ln (3.06/x)

X= 3.07583

Therefore, the minimum concentration of ATP required to provide just enough energy to run this ATPase is 3.07583 Kcal/mol.

If it costs 9.9 kcal/mol to “run” the sarcoplasmic reticulum
(SR) Ca ATPase (i.e., pumping one mol of Ca2+ ions from the
cytoplasm to the sarcoplasmic reticulum of the muscle cell per 1
ATP hydrolyzed), then what is the minimum concentration of ATP
required to provide just enough energy to run the SR Ca ATPase? In
other words, what does the concentration of ATP need to be so that
the free energy of ATP hydrolysis is -9.9 kcal/mol. Assume that...

If the intracellular concentrations of a metabolite (M-OH) and
its phosphorylated form (M-OPO32-) were 2.8 mM and 0.1 mM,
respectively, and if the intracellular concentrations of ATP and
ADP were 4 mM and 0.16 mM, respectively, what would be the
numerical value of [\Delta] ΔG (in kcal per mol to the nearest
hundredth) for the following reaction: M-OH + ATP <-->
M-OPO32- + ADP + H+? Assume a temperature of 37 °C and a pH of 7.4.
To solve this...

If the intracellular concentrations of a metabolite (M-COO-) and
its phosphorylated form (M-COOPO32-) were 3 mM and 0.12 mM,
respectively, and if the intracellular concentrations of ATP and
ADP were 3.9 mM and 0.14 mM, respectively, what would be the
numerical value of \Delta Δ G (in kcal per mol to the nearest
hundredth) for the following reaction: M-COO- + ATP <-->
M-COOPO32- + ADP? Assume a temperature of 37 °C and a pH of 7.2. To
solve this problem,...

The standard free energy change for ATP hydrolysis is -30.5
kJ/mol. Therefore, the free energy change for this reaction in a
cell in which the concentration of ATP, ADP, and Pi are 3.1 mM, 2.2
mM and 6.8 mM, respectively, and assuming a physiologically
relevant temperature (37 °C), is:
Answer -44.25 kJ/mol explain

In some cells glucose can be taken up by two different transport
systems: facilitated diffusion and glucose/proton symporter.
a) Why is glucose not taken up by passive diffusion but by means of
permeases? Describe the composition and structure of the
permeases.
b) Distinguish between facilitated diffusion and
carbohydrate/proton symporter.
The energy used to promote the active transport is the sum of the
concentration-dependent energy (R∙T∙lnK) and the electrical work
(z∙F∙ΔV). This process is usually linked directly or indirectly to
ATP...
