Reference Entry
The article presents definition of the term proton pump, which means an enzyme which is located in stomach's parietal cell that discharges hydrogen ions in exchange for potassium ions. Hydrogen/potassium adenosine triphosphate is the formal name of protein pump.

    Background: Proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) are pro-drugs requiring an acidic pH for activation. The specificity of PPI toward the proton pump is mainly due to the extremely low pH at the parietal cell canalicular membrane where the pump is located. Reactivity of PPIs was also observed in...

    Gastroesophageal reflux disease is mediated principally by acid. Today, we recognise reflux reaches beyond the esophagus, where pepsin, not acid, causes damage. Extraesophageal reflux occurs both as liquid and probably aerosol, the latter with a further reach. Pepsin is stable up to pH 7 and...
