[Answer] _____ catalyzes the production of _____ which then opens an ion channel that releases _____ into the cell’s cytoplasm.

Answer: Phospholipase C … IP3 …. Ca2+
_____ catalyzes the production of _____ which then opens an ion channel that releases _____ into the cell’s cytoplasm.
Ligand-gated ion channels (LICs LGIC) also commonly referred to as ionotropic receptors are a group of transmembrane ion-channel proteins which open to allow ions such as Na + K + Ca 2+ and/or Cl − to pass through the membrane in response to the binding of a chemical messenger (i.e. a ligand) such as a neurotransmitter.. When a presynaptic neuron is excited it releases a …
An example of passive transport is ion fluxes through Na + K + Ca 2+ and Cl − channels . These ions tend to move down their concentration gradient. For example since there is a high concentration of Na + outside the cell Na + will flow through the Na + channel into the cell . Since the electric potential inside the cell is negative the …
The F O component of ATP synthase acts as an ion channel that provides for a proton flux back into the mitochondrial matrix. It is composed of a b and c subunits. Protons in the inter-membranous space of mitochondria first enters the ATP synthase complex through a subunit channel . Then protons move to …
This opens the ion channel allowing extracellular ions into the cell . Ion permeability of the plasma membrane is altered and this transforms the extracellular chemical signal into an intracellular electric signal which alters the cell excitability. Acetylcholine receptor is a receptor linked to a cation channel . The protein consists of 4 …
As the membrane potential is increased sodium ion channels open allowing the entry of sodium ions into the cell . This is followed by the opening of potassium ion channe…
