Chapter Three: Cell biology

Cell membrane - Function - Regulation of transport

Transport Proteins come in two forms:
Carrier proteins are peripharal proteins which do not extend all the way through the membrane. They move specific molecules through the membrane one at a time.
Channel proteins extend through the bilipid layer. They form a pore through the membrane that can move molecules in several ways.
