Lecture 2 Reading Sunday September 27 21115 1 217 PM Chapter 1 Cellular Physiology Transport Across Cell Membranes There are multiple ways to transport substance across cell membranes 1 Downhill occurs by diffusion either simple or facilitated and requires no input metabolic energy a Simple not carrier mediated 2 Uphill occurs by active transport may be primary or secondary a Primary and secondary are distinguished by energy source i Primary requires direct input ii Secondary requires indirect input Carriermediated transport facilitated diffusion primary and secondary active transport all in involve integral membrane proteins gt Three features of cellmediated transport 1 Saturation carrier proteins have a limited number of binding sites for the solute i Transport maximum Tm point

Electrolytes 39 There are two consequences of the presence of charge on the solute such as an ion or an electrolyte 1 If there potential difference across the membrane then the potential difference will alter the net rate of diffusion of a charged solute 2 Diffusion potential when a charged solute diffuses down a concentration gradient that diffusion can itself generate a potential difference across a membrane Facilitated Diffusion Occurs down an electrochemical potential gradient thus it requires no input of metabolic energy Uses membrane carrier and exhibits all the characteristics of carriermediated transport saturation stereospecificity and competition Proceeds faster at low solute concentration because of the function of the carrier 39 Dglucose facilitated diffusion into skeletal muscle and adipose cells by the GLUT4 transporter Primary Active Transport Solute is moved from an area of low concentration to high concentration therefore ATP must be provided ATP is hydrolyzed to ADP and Pi releasing energy from terminal phosphate which is transferred to the transport protein thus initiating phosphorylation and dephosphorylation Primary active transport is when ATP energy source is directly coupled to the transport process 39 Ex Na K ATPase Ca2 ATPase and H K ATPase NaK ATPase Pump 39 Present in the membranes of all cells 39 Pumps Na from ICF to ECF and K

collecting duct 39 Pumps H from ICF of parietal cells to lumen of stomach 39 Omeprazole inhibitor used therapeutically to reduce the secretion of H in ulcer disease Secondary Active Transport Transport of two or more solutes is coupled Metabolic energy is supplied indirectly when for example Na concentration moves downhill providing energy for uphill movement of other solutes Inhibition diminishes the transportation of Na from ICF to ECF causing increase in Na concentration and decrease the size of the transmembrane Na gradient Two types 1 Cotransport symport uphill solute moves in the same direction as Na 2 Countertransport antiport or exchange uphill solute move in the opposite direction of Na Cotransport 39 Na and other solutes both move into the cell 39 Involved in absorbing
