Membrane Transport - Membrane Selectivity - Non-electrolyte Selectivity
... Non-electrolytes, substances that generally are hydrophobic and lipophylic, usually pass through the membrane by dissolution in the lipid bilayer, and ... For those non-electrolytes whose transport through the membrane is mediated by a transport protein the ability to diffuse is, generally, dependent on the partition ... Partially charged non-electrolytes, that are more or less polar, such as ethanol, methanol or urea, are able to pass through the membrane through aqueous channels ...

... The use of electrolyte supplementation for horses, common in endurance riding, is controversial in CTR ... The need for electrolytes tends to vary greatly from horse to horse and may also be influenced by region and climate ... Normally, a horse will naturally adjust the electrolyte balance in its body if given free access to salt (sodium chloride) and water, but this is not always possible during a competition ...
