Solved by a verified expert:One important function of the kidneys is to regulate blood pH. During acidosis, the kidneys secrete H+ into the lumen of the nephron by several pathways. Focusing on the two primary active transport pathways (H+-ATPase and the H+- K+-ATPase pump):a. Describe how they work to return pH to normal (what happens to extracellular fluid levels of Na+ and K+ in the process?).b. Pick one of the pumps and describe what is known about it structure and function at the molecular level. Use your understanding of H+ transport through proteins to comment on structures that likely exist, even if little data exist to prove it.
