The transport rate of an electrogenic ion pump, and therefore also the current generated by the pump, depends on the potential difference (delta psi) between the two sides of the membrane. This dependence arises from at least three sources: (i) charges carried across the membrane by the transported ions; (ii) protein charges in the ion binding sites that alternate between exposure to (and therefore electrical contact with) the two sides of the membrane; (iii) protein charges or dipoles that… CONTINUE READING
