Cell transport f14

Active transport movement of a particle through a membrane against a concentration gradient with the use of energy from ATP; from low to high areas
cilia hair like organelles that line the surfaces of some cells that beat in rhythmic waves, providing locomotion
concentration gradient – the difference in the amount of substances inside and outside of the cell
contractile vacuole found in many microorganisms that expand, filled with water and then empties contents to the exterior.

facilitated diffusion – type of passive transport that uses the aid of a protein to transport substances.
flagella– tail like extension of cytoplasm for movement.
homeostasis maintenance of the internal stability of a cell organism, or population in its environment
osmosis movement of water through a membrane from area of high concentration to an area of low concentration
passive transport The movement of a chemical substance across a cell membrane without expenditure of energy by the cell, as in diffusion.
perspiration serves both as a means of excretion and as a regulator of body temperature through the cooling effect of its evaporation
protein pump – u sed energy to moves substances form low to high concentrations
