electrochemical gradient concentration gradient and electrical gradient make up
Passive processes Simple diffusion Facilitated diffusion, osmosis. Active processes Active transport Vesicular transport Transport processes that move substances across the cell membrane are:
In diffusion, a dissolved molecule or ion moves down a concentration gradient
Diffusion is the net movement of like molecules or ions down a concentration gradient
Passive transport occurs in living organisms as substances move across a cell membrane
Transmembrane proteins help solutes that are too polar or too highly charged move through the lipid bilayer The processes involved are: Channel mediated facilitated diffusion Carrier mediated facilitated diffusion
Osmosis The net movement of a solvent through a selectively permeable membrane from an area of high concentration to an area of low concentration.
hypertonic solution more solute molecules) in second compartment
hypotonic solution few solute molecules) in first compartment
Tonicity of a solution relates to how the solution influences the shape of body cells
Primary Active Transport Energy derived from ATP changes the shape of a transporter protein which pumps a substance across a plasma membrane against its concentration gradient.
Secondary Active Transport Energy stored (in a hydrogen or sodium concentration gradient) is used to drive other substances against their own concentration gradients
