Resting Membrane Potential (RMP)
Dr. Mudassar Ali Roomi
(MBBS, M. Phil.)
Important channels or carriers involved in theelectrical activity of the cell
Na+, K+ Leak channels
: these areopen all thetime.Involved in generation of restingmembrane potential (RMP).
Gated channels:
these channels open and closeat a specific time when needed. Not open all thetime. All of the gated channels areclosed at RMP1.Voltage gated channels e.g. voltage gatedsodium, potassium, calcium channels.2.Ligand gated channels e.g. Acetylcholinegated channels at neuromuscular junctions.
Sodium-potassium ATPase pump
:it works allthe time. Also contributes to generation of resting membrane potential.
: Both leak channels and Na+/K+pump are active at rest ***
