Transport of Ions in Liver Cells

  • M. Claret
Part of the Membrane Transport in Biology book series (MEMBRANE, volume 4)


The general characteristics of ionic distribution in hepatocytes are similar to those in other cells. Potassium concentration is higher and sodium and chloride concentrations are lower than in plasma, and most of the evidence suggests that the fundamental processes implicated in this distribution are the same as in other tissues. The membranes of hepatocytes, however, exhibit unique biophysical properties, especially with regard to the passive permeabilities, facilitated diffusion, and the electrogenic activity of the sodium pump. The characteristics of these different transport processes will be described in the present chapter, with a particular emphasis on potassium, sodium, chloride and calcium ions, since these have been studied most intensively.
