Sodium-Potassium Pump Curiousity

Post by ScienceRob » Wed Feb 24, 2010 4:38 am

I don't need this for a class but rather my own curiosity. I understand the simple mechanics of a trans-membrane Na-K Pump but I am curious about the shift after phosphorylation. More specifically, how it looks during the transfer. Does it sort of close one end and then open up the end of the protein towards the ECM side of the cell? What is this process called? What does it look like?

A link describing all this would be helpful. I've looked around to no avail.

Cis or trans? That's what matters.
