What might be the effect of such a mutation on an animal carrying this gene? 3. The ΔG°′ for the hydrolysis of ATP to ADP + Pi is approximately −31 kJ/mole. Calculate the equilibrium constant for this reaction using R = 8.314 J/°mol at the cellular temperature of 37°C. If the cellular concentrations of ATP, ADP, and Pi are 8, 1, and 8 mM, respectively, is the above reaction at equilibrium in the cell? Is this unusual? 4.
