Title

pH Homeostasis of cellular organelles

Author
Published in News in Physiological Sciences. 2002, vol. 17, p. 1-5
Abstract An optimal pH is maintained in each secretory and endocytic organelle by the balance between active H(+) pumping and passive H(+) efflux. The progressive acidification of secretory organelles does not reflect an increased proton pumping activity but rather the decreased conduction of a "proton leak" pathway resembling the recently cloned voltage-gated proton channels.
