Abstract

Transport phenomena have a fundamental role in cellular activity. The evidence of a limiting barrier is given by the fact that the content of living cells differs from that of the medium. In most cases the concentration of K+ in the cell is ten or more times higher than that of Na+, even in cells immersed in a medium where Na+ concentration exceeds K+. As Fenn (1940) has put it “potassium is of the soil and not of the sea; it is of the cell but not of the sap”.
