During intense exercise, potassium tends to accumulate in the fluid surrounding muscle cells. What membrane protein helps muscle cells counteract this tendency? Explain your answer.
[THIS IS ONE OF MY HOMEWORK QUESTions]
Like cell membrane? Ribosomes? Haha I have no clue, you're looking at a ninth grader here.
no, lactic acid is what is generated as a result of muscle movement, not a protein that helps block it. I dont know the real answer, but search google!Originally Posted by m4dskillz
lactic acid is released to counteract potassium buildup in muscles, because intense exercise causes potassium to leak into the muscle area and disrupt function, causing fatigue.
but re-reading showed me he's looking for a protein, so i dunno wtf the answer is. lactic acid does counteract this though =D just isn't a protein

lactic acid is correct
You must answer in the form of a question.

ITs A FUCKING NA++/K+ ION CHANNEL PROTEIN
AND LACTIC ACID CAUSES FATIGUE, IT DOSENT RELIEVE IT YOU MORON
