Figure 6 A model of two of the acid acclimation mechanism in H. pylori. The outer membrane contains porins permeable to urea and protons. With acidification, Urel opens and urea moves into the cytoplasm, increasing intrabacterial urease activity. This produces 2NH3 and CO2, gases that readily exit the cell into the periplasm. Protons entering the cytoplasm are neutralized by NH3 forming NH/ while cytoplasmic carbonic anhydrase generates HCO^, which is a stronger buffer at neutral pH than NH3. Similarly, the NH3 that effluxes into the periplasm can neutralize entering acidity and the CO2 due to periplasmic carbonic

Blood Pressure Health

Blood Pressure Health

Your heart pumps blood throughout your body using a network of tubing called arteries and capillaries which return the blood back to your heart via your veins. Blood pressure is the force of the blood pushing against the walls of your arteries as your heart beats.Learn more...
