Movement of water, waste and nutrients across selectively permeable membranes
Terms in this set (15)
A semi-permeable phospholipid bilayer that controls what enters and leaves a cell
Two layers of phospholipids with heads out and tails in
Allowing some molecules pass through but not others
A state of balance on both sides of a cell's membrane
Movement of molecules across a membrane WITHOUT using ATP
Movement of molecules from HIGH to LOW concentration
Movement of molecules across a membrane using protein channels WITHOUT using ATP
Diffusion of WATER across a semi-permeable membrane - towards the side with MORE solutes
When solute concentrations on both sides of a membrane are the same - osmosis is at equilibrium
When the solute concentration inside the cell is higher, osmosis moves water INWARD
When solute concentration outside the cell is higher, osmosis moves water OUTWARD
Movement of molecules from LOW to HIGH concentration USING ATP.
Membrane protein that USES ATP to move molecules AGAINST the concentration "gradient"
Moving large molecules INTO the cell by folding in the membrane into vesicles
Moving large molecules OUT of the cell merging vesicles with the membrane
