Active transport involves carrier proteins. Carrier proteins bind themselves to particles and transport them to highly concentrated areas within a cell.
Facilitated diffusion and active transport require carrier proteins.

Yes, active transport involves proteins transporting substances against their concentration gradient with the help of ATP.

Carrier proteins are the proteins embedded in the cell membrane. These proteins facilitate the diffusion of various molecules. The movement of ions involves channel proteins.

Active Diffusion uses carrier proteins; Passive Diffusion does not.

No. They are integral membrane proteins.

the carrier proteins in the plasma membrane consist of1.2.3.

carrier proteins transport glucose into a muscle cell

Nope. Facilitated diffusion is a passive transport. It uses carrier proteins, but doesn't require any energy.

Yes, carrier proteins are specific for the substances they transport across the plasma membrane.

Carrier proteins are important in cells because not all substances needed by cells can pass through the lipid bylayer membrane. Carrier proteins let all these important nutrients through.

Many processes are regulated by carrier proteins. An example would be cellular respiration.

Yes; the small intestine has carrier proteins for transport, as do all other cellular structures.

Channel proteins carrier proteins cell recognition proteins receptor proteins enzymatic proteins

Transport proteins and carrier proteins

Proteins in general are found in many places in the body, carrier proteins are proteins that help move ions across the membrane, and yes they can be found in the cell membrane.

They act as channel proteins, carrier proteins or are purely structural.

Carrier proteins can be involved in passive transport.

It is believed that carrier proteins bind their targets and escort them into the cell.

The carrier proteins in active transport act as a "pump" to carry/attach themselves to useful proteins for the cell. Called ATP

They are too large to be transported by carrier proteins. They are moved across by vesicles instead. They are transported by endocytosis and exocytosis.

Channel proteins are on the plasma membrane, selectively transport the solutes such as ions, small and large proteins across the membrane. Carrier proteins also membrane proteins that allow diffusion of different molecules. Both proteins are chemically made up of amino acids.

Carrier proteins; also know as permeases or transporters
