There is an energy associated with maintaining this. Like other energies we’ve talked about, it will be a free energy. 36 и log ᎏᎏ Cin Cin Here R is the gas constant and T is the temperature (in kelvin). 36 kcal/mol. 36 kcal/mol. The sign here can be confusing—it’s a convention. Having higher concentration outside than inside is considered favorable. If something moves from higher to lower concentration, that’s in the favorable direction and will contribute a negative ⌬G. The ⌬G is independent of whether or not the molecule is charged.

The order of genes is altered by nonaligned recombination. There are lots of ways of moving genetic information around. All contribute to genetic diversity in the population. The result of recombination can be pictured as breaking two DNA strands into two pieces, swapping the ends, and rejoining. At the level of the individual strands, it’s a little more complicated, but for our purposes it’s good enough. Recombination can occur in regions of sequence homology. If these homologous regions correspond to the same position in the same gene, this is an aligned recombination (also called “recombination with equal crossing over”).

Naϩ high outside/Kϩ high inside. Because membranes are impermeable to most molecules, you must have a transporter (a protein) in the membrane to help molecules or ions move through it (Fig. 3-5). They are also called channels because they behave like selective holes in the membrane.
