Active Transport

Cellular Transport From Areas of Low Concentration to Areas of High Concentration

This post will introduce active transport for Prelim Biology.

Topic: Cell Function

  • Investigate the way in which materials can move into and out of cells
    • Examining the roles of active transport, endocytosis and exocytosis

 

What is Active Transport?

Active transport is the movement of substances using energy, active transport is used to transfer substances from areas of low concentration to areas of high concentration. This video will go through active transport in a little more detail.

 

This video will go through examples of where active transport is used.

 

Types of Active Transport

Active transport can occur through proteins pumps or channels, endocytosis or exocytosis. This video will go through the different types of active transport.
