Sodium Potassium Pump

Here are a couple of animations for you - the first one is a bit over-the-top, especially with the sound effects; the second a bit boring, but more complete:

Na+/K+ pump animation #1

It helps a lot to see it like that in constant motion. Plus, it was good to see how the conformation of the proteins changes when the sodium and potassium bind. Now I know that the potassium binds to the extracellular side of the protein, which makes more sense now. Much thanks
