Research on another membrane protein lead to discovery of aquaporins
o Research on Rh protein
Cells expend energy in the active transport of a solute
o Cell must expend energy to move solute against concentration
o ATP supplies energy for most active transport
Exocytosis and endocytosis transport large molecules across membranes
o Exocytosis: exports bulky molecules, like proteins or
o Endocytosis: takes in large molecules
o In both, material is packaged within a vesicle that fuses within
the membrane
o Two kinds of endocytosis
Phagocytosis: engulfment of the particle
Receptor-mediated endocytosis: uses membrane
receptors for specific solutes
Used to take in cholesterol from blood
Cells transform energy as they perform work
o House thousands of chemical reactions
Some release energy, some require it
o Energy: the capacity to do work
Kinetic: energy of motion
Ex: thermal, light
