|symport transport system||1.31||0.6||2741||100|
Symport is a type of transmembrane protein involved in secondary active transport. Transporting two type molecules or ions in the same direction at once across the membrane is a specialty of the symporter. Small molecules such as sugar, Na+are transported across the membrane by symporters in the membrane.What is symport and antiport?
Symport is a transmembrane protein molecule in the cell membrane which transports two types of molecules or ions in the same direction across the membrane. Antiport is a transmembrane protein in the cell membrane which transports two types of molecules or ions in opposite directions across the membrane.What is the difference between a cotransporter and symporter?
The symporter works in the plasma membrane and molecules are transported across the cell membrane at the same time, and is, therefore, a type of cotransporter. The transporter is called a symporter, because the molecules will travel in the same direction in relation to each other.What is the difference between uniport and symport?
Uniport refers to an integral membrane protein, which transports a single type of substrate species across the cell membrane. And, symport refers to another integral membrane protein involved in the transport of two different molecules in the same direction through the cell membrane.
