[ADP] [ATP] + [ADP] + [AMP] Energy charge = 0 ; all AMP energy high - can use ATP - biosythesize enrgy r eaction only happen when the erngy charge is high if you ahve two hgih of an energy charge - tell you y ou dont need to continue to make ATP - Energy charge = 1 ; all ATP s ythesizing reactions will slow down More AMP down here Cellular range = 0.8-0.95 pathways will osicillate Energy Charge Regulates Metabolism 3/27/13 MCB 2000 Lecture 18...
