Biology 222 Exam 1, Fall 2009 Name__________________________ Page 3 1) (20 pts) Information carries over for parts (a) – (c) a) (6 pts) A space mission to Mars has just returned to Earth but the lead scientist is unable to continue her work. Portions of her notebook have been damaged and you are responsible for reconstructing the data. Notation above the table says “Properties of Martian neuron at 45 °C.” Calculate the equilibrium potentials for each ion and give the proper units. Show your work. Ion Outside Inside E x Na + 1 100 K + 130 1.3 Ca 2+ 4 0.004 Mg 2+ 15 150 Cl - 150 15 SO 4 -2 0.2 200 b) (4 pts) If the Martian neuron is only permeable to 2 ions and g x /g y = 1, which 2 ions would make its V m = 0 mV? Which 2 ions would make its V m = +31.5 mV? Refer to the table in part (a) and show your work. c) (2 pts) The notebook says that g K /g Mg = 0.25. What is the V m of the Martian neuron if it is permeable only to K + and Mg 2+ ? Show your work.
