Sample text

All except H+-ATPase consist of 2 α-subunits and 2 β-subunits (P-type ATPases). The α-subunits are phosphorylated and form the ion transport channel (Ǟ A1). Na+-K+-ATPase is responsible for maintenance of intracellular Na+ and K+ homeostasis and, thus, for maintenance of the cell membrane potential. During each transport cycle (Ǟ A1, A2), 3 Na+ and 2 K+ are “pumped” out of and into the cell, respectively, while 1 ATP molecule is used to phosphorylate the carrier protein (Ǟ A2b). Phosphorylation first changes the conformation of the protein and subsequently alters the affinities of the Na+ and K+ binding sites.

22). Outward K+ diffusion persists until equilibrium is reached. At equilibrium, the two opposing forces become equal and opposite. In other words, the sum of the two or the electrochemical gradient (and thereby the electrochemical potential) equals zero, and there is no further net movement of ions (equilibrium concentration) at a certain voltage (equilibrium potential).

A typical neuron (motor neuron, Ǟ A1) consists of the soma or cell body and two types of processes: the axon and dendrites. Apart from the usual intracellular organelles (Ǟ p. ), such as a nucleus and mitochondria (Ǟ A2), the neuron contains neurofibrils and neurotubules. The neuron receives afferent signals (excitatory and inhibitory) from a few to sometimes several thousands of other neurons via its dendrites (usually arborescent) and sums the signals along the cell membrane of the soma (summation).
