Types of Passive Mediated Transport

Passive mediated transport does not require assistance of other molecules to pass through the membrane. Instead, there are 5 types of passive mediated transport protocols: Ionophores Porins Ion Channels Aquaporins…

Transport Across Membranes

Transport across a membrane is important as without it, our bodies would not be able to function. Types of transport for small metabolites and ions: Non-mediated transport = diffusion across…

Membrane Proteins Explained

All animal cells have a lipid bilayer membrane that interacts in the environment that it is in. This means that various proteins come and go, resulting in interactions that characterize…

Membrane Fluidity Transition Temperature

The lipid bilayer, which consists of two layers of lipids (fatty acids containing a polar head group and non-polar hydrophobic tails) is a fluid structure because of the internal and…
