2 14 Facilitated Diffusion

Facilitated diffusion is the diffusion of solutes through transport proteins in the plasma membrane Facilitated diffusion is a type of passive transport Even though facilitated diffusion involves transport proteins it is still passive transport because the solute is moving down the concentration gradient Small nonpolar molecules can easily diffuse across the cell membrane However due to

Osmosis and Cells How Osmosis Works in Cell Membrane

Osmosis and cells play integral roles in biological life Osmosis is the traveling of water across a membrane It is important for a cell's survival to regulate osmosis in order to maintain an optimal internal environment according to Student Study Guide for Campbell's BIOLOGY Fourth Edition by Martha R Taylor In order to regulate osmosis a cell uses a fluid mosaic of lipids proteins

Difference Between Diffusion and Active Transport

The main difference between diffusion and active transport is that diffusion is a passive transport method in which molecules move across the cell membrane through a concentration gradient whereas active transport requires cellular energy in order to transport molecules against the concentration gradient Key Areas Covered 1 What is Diffusion
