Measuring Concentration of ATP

Post by Esonkcoc » Wed Nov 08, 2006 10:26 am

Hi, I'll be conducting an experiment to see how the concentration of ATP will effect the rate at which respiration in baker's yeast will occur. However, i'm having some trouble finding how I would go about measureing the concentration of the ATP. Can't anyone help me as to how I would go about finding this in school lab condidtions?
Thanks for any help :)

Isn't it written in lab protocol?

lab protocol is the paper where the description of the experiments you'll have to carry out are detailed. The recipe for your experiment. It is usally handled to student before they start so they can read and understand what they are going o do in class. Reading it is a good idea...

This is an experiment which i came up with myself as it's for my A-level coursework, so it's up to me find out all these sorts of things completely on my own. So no one in my class will have a lab protocol as we're all doing individual experiments.

Then you should have written a protocol.
If you need one, you can try http://www.protocol-online.org or simply use your favorite search engine for "protocol ATP measurement leaf" and see if there are any that you can use.
