On the derivation of the Kargol's mechanistic transport equations from the Kedem-Katchalsky phenomenological equations

Suchanek, G.

General Physiology and Biophysics 24(2): 247-258

2005

In the present article, it was demonstrated that--by starting from the so-called adjusted Kedem-Katchalsky (KK) phenomenological equations (Suchanek et al. 2004), i.e. the equations: Jv=LpDeltaP-LpDDeltaPi. JD=-LDpDeltaP+LDDeltaPi it is possible to derive practical transport equations (for the volume flow and the solute flow) in the form of the Kargol s mechanistic transport equations (Kargol and Kargol 2000, 2001, 2003a,b,c, 2004; Kargol 2002). On this basis, it has been found that the KK thermodynamic formalism for membrane transport (practical equations) is in general identical with the mechanistic equations for membrane transport.
