Active transport requires energy, unlike passive transport. The carrier proteins in active transport act as a "pump" ( fueled by ATP) to carry/attach themselfves to useful proteins for the cell.

carrier molecule1. A molecule that plays a role in transporting electrons through the electron transport chain. Carrier molecules are usually proteins bound to a nonprotein group; they can undergo oxidation and reduction relatively easily, thus allowing electrons to flow through the system. There are four types of carrier: flavoproteins (e.g. FAD), cytochromes, iron-sulphur proteins (e.g. ferredoxin), and ubiquinone.2. A lipid-soluble molecule that can bind to lipid-insoluble molecules and transport them across membranes. Carrier molecules have specific sites that interact with the molecules they transport. Several different molecules may compete for transport by the same carrier. See transport protein.

They provide the markers on the cell for recognition. Some also allow facilitated diffusion to occur.


In the field of passenger transport, 'active' transport refers to modes of transport which require the passenger to take a physical role in moving themselves. The most widely used modes of active transport are walking & cycling (running, swimming & even rowing are less common examples). Active transport is often recommended as part of a healthy lifestyle because it allows people to incorporate exercise into their daily routines (e.g. cycling to the shops or walking to work). In most cases, active transport is GOOD for you. However, it is sensible to assess the risks: for example, walking in a crime-spot at night or cycling too close to motorised traffic could be bad for you. [Note - in science, 'active transport' means something different]
