Ans. A. 1- Secondary active symporter, 2- Secondary Active Antiporter, 3- Passive channel.
- In the cells depicted, the primary active Na+ /K+ ATPase (also called the sodium pump) maintains low intracellular sodium concentrations, creating an out-to-in gradient for sodium.
- This allows the secondary active transport of other molecules (X and Y in the figure) through many different transporters.
- It also results in the passive movement of sodium or potassium (leak) through channels back into cells (sodium) or out of cells (potassium).
