Carbohydrate diffusion through cell membrane

... those transport proteins have specificity: they only transport a certain kind of molecule. for example, a transporter called the sodium-glucose symporter is responsible for the absorption of glucose. However, there can be paracellular transport - stuff can go between epithelial cells, so not ...

glucose absorption

farahnaaz, There are different places where glucose/Na symporter is used, and as I said before different symporters, but general this type of system is used when you want to concentrate glucose and the glucose gradient is not the way you want it to ...

Can plants absorb sucrose?

... uniporters, after being displaced from the binding to soil particles by H+ ions contributed by plant cells. Anions are usually taken up through symporters with H+. Not all particles in solution can be taken up by root cells: a specific transporter is needed for each substance. Root cells generally ...

Cell Glucose uptake !!

... which make sure these cells are able to take up extra glucose. Plus, if your cell is an intestinal cell it might have a glucose/Na symporter on its surface. Thus its ability to take up glucose obove the rate of GLUT1 depends on the Na concentration on the outside. I'm afraid biochemistry ...

glucose absorption

The Na/glucose symporter uses the sodium gradient created and maintained by the Na/K pump, which is a primary active transporter and uses ATP.
