Buffer capacity of the CK system and range of oscillation of Δ G ATPase plotted as functions of relative fractions of [CrP] c . (A.) Capacitance of the CK system in buffering ΔGATPase, calculated from Equation (5), is plotted against [CrP]c/CRtot predicted at different work rates. (B.) The predicted range of oscillation of ΔGATPase is plotted as max ( | Δ G ATPase | ) min ( | Δ G ATPase | ) | Δ G ¯ ATPase | MathType@MTEF@5@5@+=feaagaart1ev2aqatCvAUfKttLearuWrP9MDH5MBPbIqV92AaeXatLxBI9gBaebbnrfifHhDYfgasaacPC6xNi=xH8viVGI8Gi=hEeeu0xXdbba9frFj0xb9qqpG0dXdb9aspeI8k8fiI+fsY=rqGqVepae9pg0db9vqaiVgFr0xfr=xfr=xc9adbaqaaeGaciGaaiaabeqaaeqabiWaaaGcbaqcfa4aaSaaaeaacyGGTbqBcqGGHbqycqGG4baEcqGGOaakdaabdaqaaiabfs5aejabdEeahnaaBaaabaGaeeyqaeKaeeivaqLaeeiuaaLaeeyyaeMaee4CamNaeeyzaugabeaaaiaawEa7caGLiWoacqGGPaqkcqGHsislcyGGTbqBcqGGPbqAcqGGUbGBcqGGOaakdaabdaqaaiabfs5aejabdEeahnaaBaaabaGaeeyqaeKaeeivaqLaeeiuaaLaeeyyaeMaee4CamNaeeyzaugabeaaaiaawEa7caGLiWoacqGGPaqkaeaadaabdaqaaiabfs5aejqbdEeahzaaraWaaSbaaeaacqqGbbqqcqqGubavcqqGqbaucqqGHbqycqqGZbWCcqqGLbqzaeqaaaGaay5bSlaawIa7aaaaaaa@6097@ . The curves in A and B are obtained by varying ATP hydrolysis rate from baseline (0.36 mmol s-1 (l cell)-1) to maximum (1.2 mmol s-1 (l cell)-1) values.
