Magnesium in cellular energetics

Abstract:

Most cellular magnesium is bound, yet it is the concentration of free magnesium, [Mg2+]free, in red blood cells that is vital in the regulation of enzyme activity and ion transport. It is unknown how changes in total blood magnesium affect the [Mg2+]free within red blood cells or in tissue, because the presence of other cations, especially H+ and potassium, K+ , affects the degree to which Mg2+ is bound.
