By the way, what is the point to all these questions if you already know the answers?

yes, it is the symporter plants use to get sucrose inside the cell. The system uses ATP as a proton gradient created by a special proton pump..

God it took long to load! Well, it is deffinetly a protein! If it hemoglobin, i don't know, it could be, but i don't think so.. Where are the 4 heme groups with iron atoms? But then again, i can't even see if there are 5 or 6 alpha-helixes...
