The transfer of protons between protogenic sites on a biomembrane is, biophysically, an extremely complex reaction. The complete event is a result of many intermediate steps where proton, discharged by one enzyme, collides with the membrane, binds to mobile buffer or phospholipid head group, diffuses as a free proton hydrate or “piggyback” carried on a protonated buffer molecule.
