The rate at which the Na+-K+ pump operates is not constant but is controlled by a combined effect of changes in ICF Na+ concentration and ECF K+ concentration. Do you think an increase in both ICF Na+ and ECF K+ concentrations would accelerate or slow down the Na+-K+ pump? What would be the benefit of this response?

I don't understand this at all! I do understand the sodium-potassium pump pretty well, though. Help?

  1. Answer:

    ICF Na+ + K+ --> NaK

    also
    Na+ + Cl- --> NaCl

    while keeping in mind that:
    CO2 + H2O --> H2CO3
