Stoichiometry of K+/H+ antiport helps to explain extracellular pH 11 in a model epithelium.

Abstract

The stoichiometry of K+/H+ antiport was measured fluorometrically by the static head method in highly purified vesicles from goblet cell apical membranes of larval lepidopteran midgut. The measured stoichiometry of 1 K+/2 H+ explains how the antiport results in electrophoretic exchange of extracellular H+ for intracellular K+, driven by the voltage… (More)
