Active transport requires ATP and a transport channel. The channel is made of proteins.

active transport requires energy

Active transport requires the use of ATP because in active transport things move against the concentration gradient. Usually there is a protien pump (which is a form of a transport protien) that does this.

No only active transport requires ATP.

Active transport requires some form of energy input, usually ATP

Active transport requires cells to spend energy, usually in the form of ATP

ATP - it requires energy! It may also need protein carriers.

Active transport requires energy usually from a molecule called ATP. Passive transport require no energy.

Active transport requires ATP molecules and can happen only in living cells

Active transport requires energy from the cell (ATP) and pushes materials from an area where there is less of them to where there is more of them.

All celluar transport requires Adenosine triphosphate (ATP)

Active transport requires energy in the form of ATP.

diffusion is the spread of something moving with the concentration gradient. active transport is where the movement requires energy like moving a carbohydrate into a cell. you need to use a transmembrane protein and ATP.

No, active transport requires energy. Active transport is the movement of a substance against a concentration gradient, using ATP. ( or CTP, GTP or TTP)

Sorry my answer is not too accurate... don't have my bio textbook on me. From memory, ATP phosphorylates the protein that causes active transport. It would give the energy needed for a protein to actively transport the molecule or atom of choice through the pore. Now active transport mitosis? I've never heard of that before. Are you saying that ATP activates a protein (which transfers thing) during mitosis?

Active transport requires the energy of ATP to move molecules from an area of lessor concentration to a area of greater concentration.

Well, I suppose that since mitochondria are the the main production centers of ATP and Active Transport requires ATP, that these two are directly proportional. The more mitochondria a cell has, the more ATP it can make, and the more it can do Active Transport

Carrier proteins can use active or passive transport depending on what type of carrier protein it is (meaning what the protein transports). The form of passive transport that they use is facilitated diffusion. An example of active transport is the Sodium Potassium pump. Active transport requires ATP. Facilitated diffusion is used to transport polar molecules and ions that cannot directly cross the cell membrane. Facilitated diffusion doesn't require energy.

The sodium potassium pump requires ATP - i.e. it is involved in active transport, not facilitated transport.

active transport as it requires energy provided by ATP

Active transport. To go "upstream" requires ATP, a form of energy, to pump against the ion gradient.

Yes, active transport requires carrier proteins in order to function. These require ATP to carry things in and out of the cell.
