Receptor Proteins Sensitive to specific materials that bind to them ans trigger a change in a cell's activity.
Channel Proteins Central pore, or channel, permits water, ions, and other solutes to bypass lipid portion of cell membrane
Carrier Protein Bind and transport solutes across the cell membrane. This process may or may not require energy
Enzymes Catalyze reactions in the ECF or within the cell
Anchoring Proteins Attach the cell membrane to other structures ans stabilize its position
Recognition (Identifier) Proteins Identify a cell as self or non-self, normal of abnormal, to the immune system
Diffusion Molecular movement of solutes; direction determined by relative concentrations
Osmosis Movement of water molecules toward solution containing relatively higher solute concentration; requires selective permeable membrane
Filtration Movement of water, usually with solute, by hydrostatic pressure; requires filtration membrane
(Carrier-Mediated Transport) Facilitated Diffusion Carrier proteins passively transport solutes down a concentration gradient
(Carrier-Mediated Transport) Active transport Carrier proteins actively transport solutes regardless of any concentration gradient
(Vesicular Transport) Endocytosis Creation of membranous vesicles containing fluid or solid material
(Vesicular Transport) Endocytosis Fusion of vesicles containing fluid and/or solids with the cell membrane
