What involves carrier proteins?
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.
What are comparison and contrast of the structure and function of channel proteins and carrier proteins?
Carrier proteins performs the diffusion of different molecules. They found as an integral protein in the cell membrane. When its specific binding partner molecule binds to it, the protein undergoes conformational change that allows the transport of the solute molecule inside the cell. Glucose transporter is one of the carrier proteins.
