Life Stage Applicability
Key Event Relationship Description
This key event relationship describes reduced adenosine triphosphate (ATP) supply leading to reduced cell proliferation (cell growth, division or a combination of these).
Evidence Collection Strategy
Evidence Supporting this KER
The overall evidence supporting Relationship 2204 is considered moderate.
The biological plausibility of Relationship 2204 is considered high.
Rationale: Cell proliferation is a well-known ATP-dependent process. Cell division processes, such as the mitotic cell cycle uses ATP for chromosome movements and DNA replication (Kingston 1999). The synthetic processes of major cellular components that are necessary for cell structure and growth, such as proteins and lipids, also require sufficient ATP supply (Bonora 2012). Depletion of ATP therefore has a negative impact on these processes.
Uncertainties and Inconsistencies
There are currently no inconsistencies based on the supporting literature.
Known modulating factors
Known Feedforward/Feedback loops influencing this KER
Domain of Applicability
Relationship 2204 is considered applicable to all eukaryotes, as ATP and cell proliferation are known to be tightly coupled in animals, plants and some microorganisms.
Relationship 2204 is considered applicable to all sexes, as ATP-dependent cell proliferation are used by both males and females in eukaryotes.
Relationship 2204 is considered applicable to all life stages, as ATP-dependent cell proliferation is an essential process for an organism throughout the entire life.
