This trend will continue, with the membrane potential becoming more and more negative until 3 Na ions are entering through the Na channels for every 2 K ions that are leaving through the K channels. At this point a steady state will be reached because the Na/K pump is extruding 3 Na and taking up 2 K ions on each ATP-consuming cycle. There is no net flux in this steady state, so the membrane potential will not change as long as the ATP supply is adequate (Fig. 3-5). It is important to realize that the major role of the pump is indirect; the pump is very important for maintaining the gradients but contributes only a few millivolts directly to the membrane potential.
