Na+-electrochemical potential-mediated transport of D-glucose in renal brush border membrane vesicles.

Abstract

The uphill transport of D-glucose in renal brush border membrane vesicles was correlated with the Na+ electrochemical gradient. Each component of the electrochemical potential, the membrane potential or the Na+ chemical gradient, when assayed independently supported the concentrative uptake of the sugar. When the two components were combined the rates of D… (More)
