005 The Isoelectric Point of Proteins


In this video, I talk about the isoelectric points of the proteins inside the neuron and how that results in the proteins having a negative charge. Understanding the negative charge of proteins inside the cell is important to understanding how neurons function. In the video, I also talk about the pH inside the cell. Just as a brief reminder, the pH tells how acidic or basic a solution is. If you need more info on pH, check out what Wikipedia has to say about pH.
