ATP molecules provide energy to transport proteins to carry out active transport

i dont not know so someone answer it soon please:(

Carrier proteins in active transport function as "pumps" that moves substance against their concentration gradient because of this reason that's why they are often called membrane pumps.

Specific enzymes that are used to cross substances through the cellular membrane by burning ATP are called carrier proteins.

The proteins use energy (ATP) to move the molecule from in to out and vice versa.

ATP is hydrolyzed by transport proteins releasing energy. This energy is what is used to transport a molecule across a membrane and up its concentration gradient.

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 carrier molecules used in active transport across cell membranes are carrier proteins. Each carrier protein is designed to recognize only one substance.

a channel protein :) Also energy is used during active transport but not during passive transport.

What organism is used in the active transport experiment?

ATP is often used as the source of energy during active transport.

transport proteins both are carrier proteins and channel proteins

Active transport is when a protein moves a certain material across the membrane from a region of lower concentration to a region of higher concentration. This means the substance is absorbed against the concentration gradient and energy is needed for this active transport to work. The energy is usually comes from adenosine triphosphate or ATP, every cell supplies its own ATP by cell respiration. Globular proteins or pump proteins or transporter proteins in membranes carry out the active transport, the membrane must contain a lot of these proteins so that the cell can control the contents of its cytoplasm precisely. An example of active transport is in human nerve cells where potassium ions are pumped in and sodium ions are constantly transported out of the cell by active transport into the external fluid bathing the cell to build up a store of potential energy or an electrical impulse that is used to transmit a nerve impulse.

The source of the energy used in active transport is the electrochemical gradient. Another possible source of energy for active transport is the breakdown of ATP molecules.

well if the active transport was not used it would have to use the passive transport. the meaning of not using the active transport because if you use the active transport in one case it would burst

The membrane proteins are the part of the cell used for transport. The proteins are embedded in the cell's lipid bilayer.

Cells use proteins for just about everything. Proteins are used to store DNA and they are called histones have DNA wound around them. Proteins are used as portals between membranes. Proteins are used to attach to surfaces and other cells. Proteins such as Immunoglobulins are used for defense of the cell. Proteins are used for signaling. Proteins are used for electron transport and energy production.

both transportActive and passive transport are both used by cells to move molecules into and out of them.

They are used in both, in passive the molecules move in , then change the shape then leave and the entering and leaving are both by diffusion. in active transport molecules move in by diffusion, change the shape of the carrier protein, then because theyre moving into the cell where the molecule is in higher concentration energy is required to push the molecules out of the carrier proteins, this energy comes from ATP which is supplied to the carrier proteins.

There are four functions of proteins within the cell membrane. The four functions of proteins are active transport, cell recognition, cell communications, and are used as enzymes in the cell membrane.
