Abstract

The urinary bladder of the fresh-water turtle acidifies its contents by actively transporting H+ ions across the luminal membrane. It is known that the H+ transport system is dependent upon oxidative metabolism and the substrate glucose; however, the specific biochemical events resulting in H+ translocation have not been identified.
