One of the fundamental characteristics of the living state is the ability of a cell to maintain an asymmetric distribution of solutes relative to the medium in which it is bathed. This characteristic is well recognized in the case of monovalent electrolytes. The failure of cells to maintain an asymmetric distribution of solutes, such as potassium (K+) and sodium (Na+), is associated with the deterioration of cellular and organ function. More fundamental knowledge about the cellular mechanisms that give rise to and substain the asymmetric accumulation of K+ and Na+ is needed.
