Na+/K+-ATPase works by first combining with ATP in the presence of Na+ on the inner surface of the cell membrane. The enzyme then is phosphorylated by the breakdown of ATP to adenosine diphosphate (ADP) and consequently is able to move three Na ions out of the cell. On the outer surface of the cell membrane, ATPase becomes dephosphorylated by hydrolysis in the presence of K ions and then is able to return two K ions to the cell. The term pump is used because the Na and K ions are both transported across the membrane against their concentration gradients.

Hydrolases (esterases, amidases, peptidases, phosphatases, and glycosidases) are enzymes that catalyze cleavage of bonds between carbon atoms and some other kind of atom by adding water. Digestive enzymes fall within this classification, as do those enzymes contained within the lysosome of the cell. Lyases (decarboxylases, aldolases, synthetases, cleavage enzymes, deaminases, nucleotide cyclases, hydrases or hydratases, and dehydratases) are enzymes that catalyze cleavage of carbon-carbon, carbon-sulfur, and certain carbon-nitrogen bonds (peptide bonds excluded) without hydrolysis or oxidation-reduction.

For example, the polysaccharide moieties of mucopolysaccharides and of the membrane glycoproteins are synthesized and attached to the polypeptide during its passage through the Golgi apparatus. Such an arrangement allows for the continual replacement of cellular membranes, including the plasma membrane. The ER is a quality-control organelle in that it prevents proteins that have not achieved normal tertiary or quaternary structure from reaching the cell surface. The ER can retrieve or retain proteins destined for residency within the ER, or it can target proteins for delivery to the cis-Golgi compartment.
