Adenine Nucleotides play a major role in cellular metabolism and functions, serving as high-potential phosphate transfer compounds in energy metabolism and as substrates and co-factors for proteins involved in signal transduction. During the last few years definite advancement has been made in elucidating the molecular and genetic aspects of the enzyme involved in oxidative phosphorylation, the so-called FoFl H<_-atp20_synthase.20_non-invasive20_nmr20_technologies20_have20_been20_developed20_to20_monitor20_in20_vivo20_the20_energy20_level20_of20_tissues20_based20_on20_determination20_of20_the20_concentrations20_of20_adenine20_nucleotides2c_20_phosphate20_and20_phosphate20_esters.20_thus20_it20_became20_clear20_that20_the20_capacity20_of20_oxidative20_phosphorylation20_adapts20_itself20_to20_the20_atp20_demand20_which20_changes20_continuously20_with20_the20_physiological20_state20_in20_various20_tissues.20_this20_is20_achieved20_by20_regulation20_of20_the20_enzyme20_activity20_as20_well20_as20_by20_regulation20_of20_its20_biogenesis.20_the20_reversible20_phosphorylation20_of20_proteins20_is20_rec2ad_20_cognised20_as20_a20_major20_regulatory20_mechanism20_in20_eukaryotic20_as20_well20_as20_in20_prokaryotic20_cells20_for20_cellular20_signal20_transduction20_and20_control20_of20_gene20_expression2c_20_cell20_growth2c_20_differentation20_and20_oncogenesis.20_the20_same20_applies20_to20_the20_role20_played20_by20_camp.20_a20_further20_topic20_of20_growing20_interest20_concerns20_the20_discovery20_of20_the20_atp20_binding20_cassette20_28_abc29_20_superfamily20_of20_transport20_proteins20_which20_includes20_systems20_of20_primary20_importance20_in20_medicine20_such20_as20_the20_multi-drug20_resistance20_p20_glycoprotein2c_20_the20_cystic20_fibrosis20_transmembrane20_conductance20_regulator20_28_cftr29_20_and20_the20_7020_kd20_peroxisomal20_membrane20_protein.20_finally2c_20_much20_attention20_is20_being20_devoted20_in20_many20_laboratories20_to20_the20_molecular20_structure20_and20_role20_of20_atpc2ad_20_modulated20_channels. synthase.="" non-invasive="" nmr="" technologies="" have="" been="" developed="" to="" monitor="" in="" vivo="" the="" energy="" level="" of="" tissues="" based="" on="" determination="" concentrations="" adenine="" _nucleotides2c_="" phosphate="" and="" esters.="" thus="" it="" became="" clear="" that="" capacity="" oxidative="" phosphorylation="" adapts="" itself="" atp="" demand="" which="" changes="" continuously="" with="" physiological="" state="" various="" tissues.="" this="" is="" achieved="" by="" regulation="" enzyme="" activity="" as="" well="" its="" biogenesis.="" reversible="" proteins="" _rec2ad_="" cognised="" a="" major="" regulatory="" mechanism="" eukaryotic="" prokaryotic="" cells="" for="" cellular="" signal="" transduction="" control="" gene="" _expression2c_="" cell="" _growth2c_="" differentation="" oncogenesis.="" same="" applies="" role="" played="" camp.="" further="" topic="" growing="" interest="" concerns="" discovery="" binding="" cassette="" _28_abc29_="" superfamily="" transport="" includes="" systems="" primary="" importance="" medicine="" such="" multi-drug="" resistance="" p="" _glycoprotein2c_="" cystic="" fibrosis="" transmembrane="" conductance="" regulator="" _28_cftr29_="" 70="" kd="" peroxisomal="" membrane="" protein.="" _finally2c_="" much="" attention="" being="" devoted="" many="" laboratories="" molecular="" structure="" _atpc2ad_="" modulated="">
