The HþATPase) but most are dependent on the activity of cell membrane Naþ=Kþ ATPase to develop the necessary chemical and electrical gradients for linked Hþ extrusion or alkali entry. The principal regulatory transporters are diagrammed in Fig. 4. Of these, the Naþ=Hþ exchanger is predominant. Virtually all vertebrate cells rely primarily on this exchanger to mediate regulatory Hþ extrusion (31,32). As discussed below, notable differences Figure 4 Examples of membrane transport proteins involved in removing acid from, or adding alkali to, mammalian cells.

In whole blood (55% plasma), b for plasma proteins is only $1=6 that of hemoglobin (see later). With rare exception, plasma proteins have isoelectric points well below the pH of the body fluids and thus exist as polyanions. At a normal pH, the net negative charge of these proteins (primarily albumin) is $12 mEq=L (36,37). Albumin is the major buffer protein in plasma, containing 16 histidine residues per molecule (36,37).

The proportionality constant a is the solubility coefficient for CO2. , the more concentrated the solution, the less CO2 dissolved for any given PCO2). 0308 mmol=L=mmHg (17–19). 2 mmol=L. Hydration of Dissolved CO2 As mentioned above, a small fraction of dissolved CO2 combines with water forming the weak acid, H2CO3: CO2 dis þ H2 O $ H2 CO3 ð18Þ This relationship indicates the end products of this reversible reaction, but not a key intermediate step. This step is the reaction of CO2 dis with OHÀ, yielding HCOÀ 3 .
