facilitated diffusion diffusion of molecules assisted by protein channels that pierce a cell membrane
osmosis diffusion of water molecules across a semipermeable membrane from an area of higher water concentration to an area of lower water concentration
active transport energy requiring movements of molecules across a membrane from a region of lower concentration to an region of higher concentration
endocytosis the process of taking liquids or fairly large molecules in a cell by engulfing them in a membrane
exocytosis the opposite of endocytosis; is the release of substances out of a cell by the fusion of a vesicle with the membrane
selective permeability condition or quality of allowing some, but not all, materials to cross the barrier or membrane
