You are testing an unknown membrane transport protein that isinvolved with the movement of Na+ across themembrane.  

a)Describe two possible mechanisms that could be used by yourprotein to move Na+. How do these mechanisms differ?

b)You add your protein to an in vitro membranetransport system containing everything needed to support transport,including the appropriate gradients. You observe transport in thepresence of ATP and non-hydrolyzable ATP. Which type of transportprotein did you find? Include your rationale in your answer.
