Abstract

The functional and structural asymmetry of the plasma membrane makes the net uptake of any substrate the result of an interaction between two vectorial components of different magnitudes: one directed to the inside and another one directed to the outside of the cell (Stein, 1986). At the same time, the physiological activity of the cell determines membrane transport not as an isolated process with a finality in itself, but as one step of the metabolic pathways to which is coupled and from which is in many instances dependent. Hence, the mechanisms regulating influx and efflux must be directional. On the one hand, to meet the cellular requirements in response to internal stimuli and, on the other hand, to preserve the functional integrity of the organism responding to extracellular humoral and/or tissue (paracrine) stimuli (Shotwell et al., 1983).
