Energy dissipation in slipping biological pumps.


We describe active transport in slipping biological pumps, using mesoscopic nonequilibrium thermodynamics. The pump operation is characterised by its stochastic nature and energy dissipation. We show how heating as well as cooling effects can be associated with pump operation. We use as an example the well studied active transport of Ca2+ across a… (More)
