Ion uptake in freshwater teleosts?

... glass have been replaced by hydronium ions and for the reaction to continue, the sodium ions must diffuse through this surface layer. Thus this electromotive force is no longer proportional to the hydrogen ion concentracion because it decrease and the pH become alkaline. It follows that the ...

The Fiber Disease

... the one hand, hence the aptly named “hot” spots and, on the other, contributes to the observed negative resistance of the discharge by an actual electromotive force. In the presence of an axial magnetic field, even a relatively modest one, a newly formed singularity, rather than close into a ...

Celluar Respiration

... Thanks!! Question: I understand that the chemiosmosis is powered by the difference in the concentration of hydrogen ions that creates the proton electromotive force. Let's say that a strain of cells undergoes a mutation that increases the permeability of the inner mitochondrial menmbrane to hydrogen ...
