Relationship between Electron Transport across the Plasmalemma and a pH Decrease in the Bulk Medium.

The hypothesis is tested that acidification of the bulk medium during transplasmalemma electron transport to ferricyanide is due solely to a requirement for charge balance. According to this hypothesis, reduction of the trivalent anion, ferricyanide, to the tetravalent anion, ferrocyanide, results in a charge difference that is balanced by protons. A… CONTINUE READING
