Describe the biochemical mechanism throgh which HCl is formed in the stomach(in humans) (?)
Here's my understanding of the mechanism.
Hydrochloric acid is produced by the parietal cells in the stomach.
These cells secrete about 60 mL
roughly 0.16 mol/L.
This is about
Thus, the secretion of hydrochloric acid depends on active transport.
The key player is a proton pump
The dissociation of water within the cell generates
The proton pump removes
The net effect is that one
