Abstract: Phosphorus is an essential element for all living organisms and is central to the genetics and energetics of life. Inorganic phosphate (Pi) is recurrently involved in protein regulation and signal transduction but also in energy transfer as a component of the ATP-molecule. When cells and cell organelles commence a plethora of energy-demanding processes associated with ATP hydrolysis to ADP and Pi, a balancing of the Pi content between compartments is crucial to prevent the ATP hydrolysis to be s... more
