I was wondering, what affect does a direct injection of ATP into a vein do? Since ATP is permeable through a cells membrane, it should have an effect, but of what I am uncertain . I was also wondering if it is possible to keep tissue alive by shutting off its ATP production (both glycolysis and krebs cycle) using something such as 3-bromopyruvate (3-BrPA)and then to provide ATP through a constant perfusion or another method. Any help would be very appreciated as I am on a time consraint. Thanks, Nicodemus
