oWhat is the process that triggers the conformational change in the Na+/K+ pump? oAs a result of the actions of this carrier proteins, what is created in terms of Na+ and K+? oWhat other pumps are found in your digestive track and in your muscle cells? oHow is secondary active transport similar to the coupling of metabolic reactions? oWhat is cotransport (symport) and give an example? oWhat is countertransport (antiport) and give an example? oHow can we determine which substance is being transported actively and which is being passively transported? 19.Factors Affecting Rates of Active TransportoWhat are the two factors that are the sole determinants of the rate at which molecules are actively transported across any membrane? 20.Coexistence of Active and Passive Transport Mechanisms in CellsoIf substances are actively transported into or out of cells, why don't intracellular concentrations change? 21.
