This type of ion pump is called an ATPase. , at a rate of around 1 µmol ⋅ s–1 ⋅ m–2 of membrane surface area in the case of Na+-K+ATPase. The gradient can be exploited to achieve rapid (passive) ionic currents in the opposite direction after the permeability of ion channels has been increased (Ǟ p. ). Na+ can, for example, be driven into a nerve cell at a rate of up to 1000 µmol ⋅ s–1 ⋅ m–2 during an action potential. ATPases occur ubiquitously in cell membranes (Na+-K+-ATPase) and in the endoplasmic reticulum and plasma membrane (Ca2+-ATPase), renal collecting duct and stomach glands (H+,K+ -ATPase), and in lysosomes (H+-ATPase).
