Example text

Because of the dependence on Na+,K+-ATPase, epithelial transport requires the expenditure of energy. Other ATP-dependent transporters are also involved in epithelial transport, including H+-ATPase, H+,K+-ATPase, and a host of ATP-binding cassette (ABC) transporters such as pGP and MRP2, which transport xenobiotics (drugs), and the cystic fibrosis transmembrane regulator (CFTR). page 30 page 31 Solutes and water can be transported across an epithelium by traversing both the apical and basolateral membranes (transcellular transport) or by moving between cells across the tight junction (paracellular transport).

This hyperpolarizes the cell as Vm approaches EK+. As K+ conductance returns to its baseline value, Vm returns to its resting value of -70 mV. (Modified from Levy MN, Koeppen BM, Stanton BA: Berne & Levy's Principles of Physiology, 4th ed. St. ) Inspection of Equation 2-6, which is often called the chord conductance equation, reveals that Vm will be close to the Nernst potential of the ion to which the membrane has the highest conductance. In Figure 2-4, 80% of the membrane conductance is attributable to K+; as a result, Vm is close to the Nernst potential for K+ (EK+).

The percentage of body weight attributed to water also varies with age. In newborns it is approximately 75%. This decreases to the adult value of 60% by the age of 1 year. * The intracellular fluid compartment is the larger compartment and contains approximately two thirds of total body water. The remaining third is contained in the extracellular fluid compartment. Expressed as percentages of body weight, the volumes of total body water, ICF, and ECF are Figure 2-1 Relationship between volumes of the various body fluid compartments.
