Abstract

1. Levels of free magnesium ion in various tissues are reviewed. 2. Total magnesium and ATP levels in different tissues are correlated, due to the presence of MgATP. 3. Relationships between pH and temperature in poikilotherms are such as to keep constant the amount of magnesium bound by ATP. 4. ATP hydrolysis in vivo generally tends to release magnesium ions, but conditions in some muscle may be such as to minimize this release.
