  • Facilitated Diffusion

    Diffusion that uses transport proteins proteins to move molecules across a membrane

  • Passive Transport

    A form of cell transport that does not require energy in the form of ATP

  • Transport Proteins

    Proteins in the cell membrane that move molecules across the membrane from low to high concentration by using energy in the form of ATP

  • Active Transport

    Cell transport that uses energy in the form of ATP
