It requires selective barrier properties that provide controlled oxygen transmission rate and controlled oxygen content inside the package, so that a limited amount of aerobic respiration can occur.
Since aerobic respiration generates ATP many times more efficiently than the alternative anaerobic pathway, there's a huge incentive for an anaerobic organism to form a symbiosis with an aerobic partner, explains Cavalier-Smith.
These costs are met by the supply of ATP from aerobic respiration (with smaller amounts of ATP presumably from glycolysis), and therefore aerobic respiration is likely to reflect changes in the cost of calcification.
The rising levels of atmospheric oxygen fostered the evolution of new bacteria species that survived by aerobic respiration on land.
Chemical effects on isolated mitochondria can be detected using polymerase chain reaction methods that measure DNA damage, or with oxygen sensors that measure aerobic respiration.
