Resting Membrane Potential (RMP) According to Nernst: if plasma membrane was: permeable only to K+; RMP would equal EK -80 mV when K+ gradient = 1/20 [inside/outside] Eion 61.5 mV z log [ion]ou tside [ion]insi de = Vm predicted by Nernst theory -120 Assuming constant [K+] i = 100 mM Nernst predicts Vm = 0 mV when [K+] o = 100 mM -61.5 mV when [K+] o = 10 mM -123 mV when [K+] o = 1 mM _________of measured Vm is not as ______ as predicted by Nernst theory Measured changes in Vm in response to altering [K+] o measured

Resting Membrane Potential (RMP) RMP of a typical neuron is -65 mV, because the membrane at rest is much more permeable to K+, but also a little permeable to Na+ The _________ equation calculates RMP using relative permeability of the membrane to different ions V = 61.5 mV log P K [K]ou t P K [K]in P Na [Na]o ut P Na [Na]i n + +

Goldman equation gives a resting membrane potential of -65 mV if the cell membrane is 40 times more permeable to K+ than Na+ V = 61.5 mV log P K [K]ou t P K [K]in P N a [Na]o ut P N a [Na]i n + + V = 61.5 mV log 40 (5) + 1 (150) 40 (100) + 1 (15) = 61.5 mV V log 350 4015 = -65 mV

____ channels Plasma membrane permeability to each ion depends on the number of open ion channels for that ion. The plasma membrane is much more permeable to K+ than Na+ because at rest many more potassium channels are open relative to sodium channels (and channels for other ions). These potassium channels responsible for the resting
