Module 4-2 Action Potential Bold Red Text- This material will be on exam Highlighted Text- important concept/term  The structure of the neuron  The Na/K pump uses the energy of ATP hydrolysis to pump Na+ out and K+ in, both against their electrochemical gradients. o Outside the pump is more positive, while inside the pump is negative.  Ion channels have highly selective hydrophilic pores. o They make the membrane permeable for selected inorganic ions depending on:  Diameter and shape of the channel  Distribution of charged amino acids that line the channel o They have a HUGE transport rate because the protein doesn’t need to change conformation with each ion it passes o They are gated, which means they open in response to changes in membrane voltage. o They are essential for signaling in nerve cells. o These channels are only one way; neurons cannot transmit signal both ways.  An action potential is triggered by a brief pulse of current (depolarizing stimulus). -Need to be able to label:  Resting potential  Depolarization  Repolarization  Action potential  Threshold o Resting Potential is always around -60 through -70 mV  Variation in the resting potential can be either inhibiting or excited. o Threshold is always around -55 mV o Action Potential is always around 40 mV
