    Active transport mechanisms can be divided into two categories. Primary active transport directly uses a source of chemical energy (e.g., ATP) to move molecules across a membrane against their gradient. Secondary active transport (cotransport), on the other hand, uses an electrochemical gradient – generated by active transport – as an.   The Na+ - K+ pump, the major electrogenic pump in animal cells, exchanges sodium ions for potassium ions, both of which are cations. How does this exchange generate a membrane potential?

      The sodium-potassium pump moves sodium ions out of and potassium ions into the cell. This pump is powered by ATP. For each ATP that is broken down, 3 sodium ions move out and 2 potassium ions move in. In more detail: Sodium ions bind to the pump and a phosphate group from ATP attaches to the pump, causing it to change its shape. A book of the names and address of people living in a city. Why is the sodium-potassium pump called an electrogenic pump? Wiki User.

    The sodium-potassium pump is called an electrogenic pump because it A) pumps equal quantities of Na? and K? across the membrane. B) pumps hydrogen ions out of the cell. C) contributes to the membrane potential. D) ionizes sodium and potassium atoms. E) is used to drive the transport of other molecules against a concentration gradient. Answer: C.   The sodium-potassium pump is called an electrogenic pump because it: a. pumps equal quantities of Na and K across the membrane b. pumps hydrogen ions out of the cell c. contributes to the membrane potential d. ionizes sodium and potassium atoms e. is used to drive the transport of the other molecules against a concentration gradient Thank you for your time.

Additional Physical Format: Online version: Kerkut, G.A. Electrogenic sodium pump. Bristol (42 Triangle West, Bristol, BS8 1EX), Scientechnica Ltd, As a result of sodium potassium pump proteins and potassium leak channels, a cell may achieve a resting membrane potential of to mv (millivolts).

This negative value indicates how much lower the positive charge within the cytoplasm is compared to the environment on the other side of the membrane. For example, the Na + /K + ATPase (sodium pump) is an electrogenic pump because during every transport cycle, it transports The electrogenic sodium pump book Na + ions out of the cell and 2 K + ions into the cell.

This leads to the movement of one net positive charge out of the cell making this process electrogenic. Transepithelial sodium transport is a process that involves active Na + transport at the basolateral membrane of the epithelial cell.

This process is mediated by the Na + /K + pump, which exchanges 3 internal Na + by 2 external K + inducing a net charge movement and the second Na >+ pump, which transports Na+ accompanied by ClCited by: 2. 55) The sodium-potassium pump is called an electrogenic pump because it A) pumps equal quantities of Na+ and K+ across the membrane.

Abstract. As described in several preceding chapters, the Na-K pump is responsible for maintaining the cation electrochemical gradients. The diffusion potentials for K + (E K) and Na + (E Na) are about −94 mV and +60 mV, respectively (although some estimates of E Na go as high as + mV).

The resting potential value is usually near E K, because the K + permeability (P Author: Nicholas Sperelakis.
