Comments "Taking an average value of 1, and noting that 10% of the charge influx is carried by Ca2+ rather than Na+ (Burnashev et al., 1995), this implies an entry of 180,000 Na+ and 10,000 Ca2+ per vesicle of glutamate released. Each Ca2+ is extruded by 3 Na+/Ca2+ exchange, leading to the entry of an extra 30,000 Na+, so the total Na+ entry is 210,000 ions requiring hydrolysis of 70,000 ATP molecules for their extrusion."
