Biomedical Physiology 1/20/16  Recap -What’s going on in/out of the cell -Unequal distribution of solutes -Structures and movement -Processes that help movement -Change in permeability due to information transfer  Membrane receptors Transfer of cell information: 4) Intracellular receptors o Steroids -Lipid soluble >Lipid bilayer binds to intracellular receptors; transcription starts and has a genomic affect -Cholesterol based -Causes production of new protein  The membrane potential -The difference in charge between the inside and outside of the cell INSIDE CELL INSIDE CELL Net charge is - Net charge is + Low NA+ (15 mM) High NA+ (150 mM) High K+ (150 mM) Low K+ (5 mM) Low Cl- (4mM) High Cl- (110 mM) Low Ca2+ (.1mM) High Ca2+ (1.2 mM) High proteins – (161 mM) Low Pr- (4.5 mM) -Creates electrochemical equilibrium because of the huge amount of negative charge (A-) (A-) -Everything is in equilibrium -Not chemical equilibrium, electrochemical equilibrium -Stable resting potential -Electrochemical equilibrium >DONAN equilibrium -When the cell is at rest, membrane potential tends to be negative >The resting membrane potential -All cells have relative distribution like this -A lot of cells are always at a resting potential -Lots of NA+/K+ pumps throughout the cell membrane in order to keep the relative distribution -Movement of these K+ ions is a main influence on resting potential >Because more K+ passive K+ channels/membrane than passive Na+ channels  Excitable cells (neurons, muscle cells) -Change membrane potential -Change relative concentration of ions in/out of the cells -They don’t have passive channels -They have chemically and voltage gated/regulated channels -When excitation comes, when membrane potential changes: >Membrane voltage changes >Membrane charge changes >”All bets are off”  Different cells have different resting potentials -You can calculate the resting potentials if you know the relative concentration of ions inside and outside of the cell -You do this by use of the Goldman equation [I= concentration] [R=8.314 (gas constant)] [P=Permeability of ion] [T=temp (K)] [F=Faraday’s constant (Colum’s/mole)] [EMF= electro motive force (voltage)] o Equation: EMF=RT/F ln[(P[K] ou/[K] )+(P[Na+] out/[Na+] )+ (P[Cl-] /P[Cl-] ou)]  The Nernst equation is the idea that K+ is the key thing -(RT/zF) is a constant like normal body temperature o Equation: in out EMF=[(RT/zF) log (K /K )] Ex. (100 in/ 100 out) =1 log of 1 = 0 -If you had more K+in the extracellular than intracellular fluid, then it would be less negative, and more positive. It would be depolarized. Ex. depolarized (100 in/ 1000 out) =.1 results in less negative  Ex. hyperpolarized (1000 in /100 out) =10 results in more negative

Why people love StudySoup

Jim McGreen Ohio University

"Knowing I can count on the Elite Notetaker in my class allows me to focus on what the professor is saying instead of just scribbling notes the whole time and falling behind."

Allison Fischer University of Alabama

"I signed up to be an Elite Notetaker with 2 of my sorority sisters this semester. We just posted our notes weekly and were each making over $600 per month. I LOVE StudySoup!"

Steve Martinelli UC Los Angeles

"There's no way I would have passed my Organic Chemistry class this semester without the notes and study guides I got from StudySoup."


"Their 'Elite Notetakers' are making over $1,200/month in sales by creating high quality content that helps their classmates in a time of need."
