    Biology Question

    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.

    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!

    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
