Food, urea, hormones, ions, carbon dioxide, antibodies, plasma proteins and other substances dissolved in water.

'

Also, ions of sodium, potassium, calcium, chloride and hydrogen carbonate are present.

'

Proteins such as fibrinogen (needed for clotting), globulins (include the antibodies which fight against bacteria) and albumin are all present and important parts of the plasma.

relate plasma membrane structure to active and passive transport processes

User Avatar

Passive transport occurs inly with plasma membrane.

User Avatar

One is that the transport vesicle transports products to the plasma membrane.

Bulk Transport is an example of active transport. The process by which amoeba engulfs its food and secretes is a type of active transport. Amoeba forms false feet like pseudopodia and engulf food.Active and Passive transport both are related with plasma membrane. Active Transport is the transport of food across plasma membrane with expenditure of energy.

Molecular Transport (in cells) is the movement of materials across a cell membrane. The two kinds of Molecular Transport used in organisms are Active Transport and Passive Transport. Active Transport- materials move across the plasma membrane with the use of energy (like Adenosine Triphosphate) Passive Transport- materials move accross the plasma membrane without the use of energy

Active transport is ATP dependent, whereas passive transport uses only the kinetic energy of the particles for movement across the plasma membrane- mastering A and P homework-

User Avatar

No, this is because the transport of K and Na ion across the plasma membrane require active transport and this require ATP.

Yes, plasma is the staw coloured liquid that makes up the liquid transport medium in blood

They are used in Facilitated Diffusion, helping to transport ions, macromolecules, and other substances incapable of entering a cell by themselves to cross through the plasma membrane of the cell.

in my anatomy book it states "it provides a transport medium for solutes and formed elements" i hope this helps later

User Avatar

Use of a different necessary process besides the particular element transport. In active transport this process is energy consumption and in facilitated transport it is simultaneous transport of another element.

They allow movement of salts and sugars through the plasma membrane

Osmosis. Osmosis is the diffusion of water through a selectively permeable membrane. I'm assuming you mean active transport of plasma into a red blood cell.

both facilitated diffusion and active transport.
