d) primary active transport

Simple diffusion

Bulk flow is fluid flow as a result of a __________ gradient.


Caveolae and clathrin-coated pits are both used in ______________.


Carrier proteins operating at their maximum rate are said to be __________.


Sodium ions are more concentrated in the extracellular fluid than in the intracellular fluid. This is an example of ___________.

chemical disequilibrium

Facilitated diffusion and active transport differ in that

ATP is necessary for active transport, but not for facilitated diffusion.

A primary active transport process is one in which __________.

molecules move through transport proteins that have been activated by ATP

Some transport proteins in the plasma membrane move a substrate against its concentration gradient but do not get energy by hydrolyzing ATP. This type of transport is known as _____.

indirect active transport

Osmosis, the primary mechanism by which water moves across the plasma membrane, is most like which of the following?

simple diffusion

What does the Goldman-Hodgkin-Katz equation take into account that the Nernst equation does NOT?

the permeabilities of the ions

Ions are unequally distributed across the plasma membrane of all cells. This ion distribution creates an electrical potential difference across the membrane. What is the name given to this potential difference?
