BIPN 100 Chris Childers Dr. Fortes Winter 2010 Test Questions: 1. Fill in the following… [Ion]inside (mM) [Ion]outside [mM) Eion: (mV) Driving Force Vm = -70mV Driving Force Vm = +30mV Direction Vm = -70mV Direction: Vm = +30mV K = 150 K = 1.5 -122 +52 +152 Out Out Na = 14 Na = 140 +61 -131 -31 In In Cl = 100 Cl = 10 +61 -131 -31 Out Out Ca = 0.0001 Ca = 1 +122 -192 -92 In In 2. In the year 2056, Mars has a research lab in the MIH (Martian Institutes of Health). Drs. Little & Greenman discover life in an underground lake and study neurons from a new life form. They find the following ionic compositions: [Li+]in = 8.5mM, [Li+]out = 850mM, [Rb+] in = 770 mM, [Rb+]out = 7.7mM, [I-]in = 700mM, [I-]out = 70mM. They measure the resting membrane potential at 37o to be +61mV… A. Which ion has the highest permeability(conductance) at rest? Li+ or I- B. Which ion(s) is/are actively transported and in what direction? Li+ out of the cell and Rb+ into cell When they stimulate the neuron they see strange action potentials in the axons. The membrane potential changes from resting to -100mV in 5msec, then to +105mV in 10msec, and returns to the resting potential of +61mV in 25msec.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
