WHAT DOES MEMBRANE TRANSPORT MEAN IN ENGLISH?

membrane transport

Membrane transport

In cellular biology the term membrane transport refers to the collection of mechanisms that regulate the passage of solutes such as ions and small molecules through biological membranes, which are lipid bilayers that contain proteins embedded in them. The regulation of passage through the membrane is due to selective membrane permeability - a characteristic of biological membranes which allows them to separate substances of distinct chemical nature. In other words, they can be permeable to certain substances but not to others. The movements of most solutes through the membrane are mediated by membrane transport proteins which are specialized to varying degrees in the transport of specific molecules. As the diversity and physiology of the distinct cells is highly related to their capacities to attract different external elements, it is postulated that there is a group of specific transport proteins for each cell type and for every specific physiological stage.

Definition of membrane transport in the English dictionary

The definition of membrane transport in the dictionary is the process by which physiologically important substances, such as calcium ions, sugars, etc, are conveyed across a biological membrane.
