(Matlab) Adenine nucleotide translocator (ANT)
The primary function of Adenine nucleotide translocator (ANT) is to catalyze ADP/ATP exchange across the inner membrane. Under respiring conditions, ATP4− generated by oxidative phosphorylation is exported to the cytosol for use in cellular activities and ADP3− is imported into the mitochondrial matrix for continuous ATP synthesis. Ant is therefore an ADP3−/ATP4− exchanger. The two reactions involved in the ANT are: 1. (cytoplasm) Creatine Kinase (EC 188.8.131.52) Phosphocreatine + ADP + H+ <-> Creatine + ATP 2. (Mito matrix) ATP Hydrolysis (EC 184.108.40.206) ATP + H2O <-> ADP + Pi + H+ Hydrolysis of ATP. Model generated from The Biochemical Simulation Environment (BISEN).
