Possible Mechanisms for the Linkage of Membrane Potentials to Metabolism by Electrogenic Transport Processes with Special Reference to Ascaris Muscle

  • P. C. Caldwell

Abstract

Although electrogenic transport processes in cell membranes are being increasingly invoked to account for certain membrane phenomena (see for example Kernan, 1962; Cross et al., 1965; Kerkut and Thomas, 1965; Moreton, 1969; Brading and Caldwell, 1971; Marmor, 1971) there has been comparatively little discussion of likely mechanisms and of the ways in which these might be linked to metabolism and affect the membrane potential.
