    transport, enzymatic activity, signal transduction, cell to cell recognition, intercellular joining, attachment to the cytoskeleton

    by active transport, takes energy
  • is active transport from high to low or low to high concentration
    low to high
  • what is the sodium potassium pump and what does it do
    active transport of sodium and potassium, uses ATP to move sodium against its gradient
  • what does a cotransport do
    moves amino acids and sugars into the cell through coupled channels
  • what is the electrogenic pump
    transport protein that generates the voltage across the membrane
  • what are two compounds that can diffuse through the membrane and two that cannot
    Can; water and oxygen; nonpolar Cannot; ions, polar compounds
  • name three factors that can increase the fluidity in the membrane
    increase in temperature, unsaturated fatty acids, absence of cholesterol

    carriers, channels, receptors, cell adhesion proteins, glycoproteins, cytoskeletal attachment proteins
  • what is the name for the model that describes cell membranes
    fluid mosaic model
  • describe how a channel proteins structure allows things to enter and leave cells
    channels have polar portions that face the extracellular and cytoplasmic sides of the membrane. their nonpolar portions are anchored into the cells membranes hydrophobic tails. beta barrels line the inside and form an empty passageway. filled with fluid
  • what is the name for water diffusion and which direction does it move
    osmosis and from areas of high to low concentration
  • in two solutions its the one with the most solute
  • if a red blood cell is placed in pure water, which direction will water diffuse and what do we call this
    into the cell because the concentration of solutes are higher inside the cell than outside in the pure water- hemolysis
  • its the pressure of free water molecules colliding with the inside surface of a cell membrane.
    osmotic pressure, or turgor pressure
  • name three ways living organisms maintain an osmotic balance with their enviroment
    -unicellular marine- make themselves isotonic -multicellular animals- bathe cells in isosmotic fluids -fresh water protozoans- contractile vacuoles and active transport -plants- high turgor pressure
  • the three kinds of bulk movement into and out of cells
    pinocytosis phagocytosis receptor-mediated endocytosis exocytosis
  • in greek these terms mean "cell drinking" and "cell eating"
    pinocytosis and phagocytosis
  • its the type of endocytosis that ingests large organisms or fragments of organic matter
  • two disadvantages of exo- and endocytosis
    not specific, costs energy
  • in detail, describe the process of receptor- mediated endocytosis
    creathes a clathrin- coated vesicle
  • they are the two types of proteins involved in passive diffusion
    channel and carrier proteins
  • its the term used to describe the passage of only certain molecules into and out of a cell
    selectively permeable
  • its the difference between channel and carrier proteins
    channels are water filled that don't interact with the molecule, carriers actually bind and help transport
  • its the type of passive transport done by carrier proteins
    facilitated diffusion
  • they are three characteristics of facilitated diffusion
    specific, passive, may be saturated
  • its the reason for doing active transport
    to move molecules against the gradient and concentrate them in cells
  • its the concentration of sodium and potassium inside the cell relative to the outside
    sodium- lower inside the cell potassium- is higher inside the cell

    sodium potassium pump, cotransport, countertransport, proton pump, electrogenic pump
  • describe how two separate membrane proteins are involved in the active transport process of molecules
    A Carrier- acts as a pump with the energy of ATP. A Channel- that allows the molecule of interest to travel back into the cell, down the gradient of the first molecule.Also, co- and counter-transport.
  • describe the process of chemiosmosis
