Ionic mechanism of the H+ pump in a snail neurone

  author={Roger C. Thomas},
THE observed values of pH inside nerve and muscle cells are too high to be explained by a passive distribution of H+ across the cell membrane1–4. Thus there is believed to be a system, provisionally named a H+ or proton pump, which transports H+ out of, or OH− or HCO3− into the cell. In spite of its importance, little is known about this system, perhaps because it cannot easily be studied using radioisotopes, the use of which has yielded much information about the far better known Na pump.
