Effects of Ammonia on Cell Death

Even though ammonia affects the cell growth rate and maximum cell density, effect on cell death is not well documented. Ozturk et al. (6) reported no effect of ammonia on the cell-specific death rate in the range of 0 to 5 mM; their data on the death rate are presented in Figure 2. When the ammonia concentration was increased from 0 to 3.75 mM, the specific death rate did not change. Ozturk and Palsson (88) also observed that elevated ammonia concentrations did not significantly influence the cell viability.
