Year 12 Transport Across Cell Membranes Keywords

Consists of the outer cell-surface membrane, nucleus, cytoplasm, and the inner vacuole membrane
Type of transport protein that allows the passage of water-soluble ions
Phosphate head with two fatty acid tails
A loss of water in a plant cell resulting in the protoplast being pulled away from the cell wall
Type of transport in which substances move against its concentration gradient
Molecule that is involved with the transfer of energy
Protein used to maintain a lower concentration of sodium ions in ileum epithelial cells compared to the lumen
At high temperatures, molecules have more of this type of energy
Acts as recognition sites and allows cells to recognise one another
Two layers of phospholipids
Movement of water down its water potential gradient
When the protoplast of the cell is kept pushed against the cell wall
Bulk transport of materials through the cell-surface membrane
Water potential of distilled water
Reduces lateral movement of phospholipids and makes the membrane less fluid
The cell surface membrane consists of phospholipids that can move relative to one another as well as embedded proteins
Movement of substances from a region of high to low concentration until equilibrium is reached
Type of substances that can enter and leave the cell by simple diffusion
Pressure created by water molecules
Type of substance that must enter and leave cell by facilitated diffusion
Method by which the remainder of glucose is absorbed in the small intestine
Unit with which water potential is measured
Projections of the ileum epithelial cell-surface membrane
Polysaccharide that makes up plant cell walls
Type of transport protein that binds molecules such as glucose and amino acids and then changes shape in order to move these molecules across the membrane
Protein used in the cotransport of sodium ions and glucose
