Cell Membrane Transport Learning biology just got easier. Understanding how cells transport ions and molecules across their membranes is one of the most important concepts in biology. Once you have mastered these processes, you’ll have a great foundation to learn more complex systems such as membrane potential, action potentials, and how cells respond to external stimuli. This book is designed for high school biology students, and those who wish to pursue careers in biomedical science, from nursing to neurosurgery!
Traditional textbooks are limited to text and still images. This book is intended to help students understand the dynamic world of cell biology through visual tools and interactive content, such as videos, 3D animations, and rotatable models of proteins and molecules. Interactive annotated images, reference materials, embedded assessment items, and study cards also aid students in understanding the dynamic world of cells.
You will learn:
The mechanisms of diffusion, passive transport, active transport, and primary vs. secondary transport.
How cells use the transport of ions and molecules to regulate their internal environment and respond to changes (homeostasis).
How concentration differences in water, ions, and molecules affect molecular transport mechanisms. Other biological, chemical and physical science concepts which give context and clarity to cell membrane transport, including ions and molecules, solubility, the constitution of the cell membrane, ATP hydrolysis, equilibrium, and much more!
