3 Types of cell membrane transport Factors affecting transport Cell membrane Chemical gradient Electrical gradient Rate of transport Passive transport Diffusion Osmosis Facilitated diffusion Active transport Pumps phagocytosis Endocytosis/exocytosis

4 Factors affecting transport: cell membrane The cell needs to absorb and excrete various compounds throughout its life. These compounds need to pass through the membrane which is made from a phospholipid bilayer The phospholipid bilayer is formed by phospholipid molecules  bipolar molecule: the fatty acid side is hydrophobic, the phosphoric side is hydrophilic

5 The membrane is permeable to: The membrane is impermeable to:  H2O  Gases (O2, CO2, N2)  Lipids  Small, neutral molecules (such as urea)  Small, charged molecules  “large molecules” such as amino acids, glucose and larger  These compounds must go through channels present in the membrane in order to enter or exit the cell

6 Factors affecting transport: Chemical gradient Compound moves from an area of high concentration to low concentration (or concentration gradient) All compounds permeable to the phospholipid bilayer will move this way

7 Factors affecting transport: Electrical force Positive ions are attracted to negative ions and vice versa Ions are repelled by ions of the same charge (+ against + and – against -)

8 Movement across the cell membrane Both chemical and electrical forces (electrochemical force) drive the movement of compounds across the cell membrane

9 Factors affecting the rate of transport  The rate of transport will depend on:  The concentration gradient  The compound permeability to the membrane  The type and number of charges present on the compound

10 Crossing of cell membrane fats and oils can pass directly through inside cell outside cell waste lipid sat sugaraa H2OH2O

11 Types of Transport Proteins Channel proteins are embedded in the cell membrane & have a pore for materials to cross Carrier proteins can change shape to move material from one side of the membrane to the other

12 Cell membrane channels Need to make “doors” through membrane protein channels allow substances in & out specific channels allow specific material in & out H 2 O channel, salt channel, sugar channel, etc. inside cell outside cell

13 Protein channels Proteins act as doors in the membrane channels to move specific molecules through cell membrane HIGH LOW

14 Passive transport Compounds will move from area of high concentration toward area of lower concentration No ATP is needed for this type of transport Passive transport mainly TWO types A-Osmosis B-Diffusion-diffusion again two types a-simple diffusion- no energy needed b- facilitated diffusion- no energy needed -help through a protein channel

15 Osmosis Each compound obeys the law of diffusion diffusion of water from HIGH concentration of water to LOW concentration of water across a semi-permeable membrane However, some compounds are unable to cross the cell membrane (glucose, electrolytes…) Water can cross  will enter or exit the cell depending its concentration gradient.


17 Cells in Solutions

18 PLASMOLYSIS Isotonic Solution NO NET MOVEMENT OF H 2 O (equal amounts entering & leaving) Hypotonic Solution CYTOLYSIS Hypertonic Solution PLASMOLYSIS

19 Diffusion Simple diffusion- no energy needed Movement across higher to lower concentration gradient. Facilitated diffusion- Some compounds are unable to diffuse through the membrane. They will be allow to cross if the membrane has proteins that can bind these compounds and enable to cross toward the area of lower concentration

20 Simple and facilitated diffusion inside cell outside cell lipid inside cell outside cell H2OH2O simple diffusionfacilitated diffusion H2OH2O protein channel

21 Simple Diffusion  Doesn’t require energy  Moves high to low concentration  Example: Oxygen or water diffusing into a cell and carbon dioxide diffusing out.

22 Simple Diffusion The rate of diffusion will be increased when there is : Concentration greater the difference in concentration,faster Concentration: the difference in between two areas (the gradient) causes diffusion. The greater the difference in concentration, the faster the diffusion. Molecular sizequickly. Molecular size: smaller substances diffuse more quickly. Large molecules (such as starches and proteins) simply cannot diffuse through. Shape of Ion/Moleculeprevent Shape of Ion/Molecule: a substance’s shape may prevent it from diffusing rapidly, where others may have a shape that aids their diffusion. Viscosity of the Mediumslowly Viscosity of the Medium: the lower the viscosity, the more slowly molecules can move through it.

23 Movement of the Medium cytoplasmic steaming Movement of the Medium: currents will aid diffusion. Like the wind in air, cytoplasmic steaming (constant movement of the cytoplasm) will aid diffusion in the cell. Solubility:lipid easily, Solubility: lipid - soluble molecules will dissolve through the phospholipid bilayer easily, as will gases like CO 2 and O 2. Polaritywaternot protein ion Polarity: water will diffuse, but because of its polarity, it will not pass through the non-polar phospholipids. Instead, water passes though specialized protein ion channels

24 Facilitated diffusion  Doesn’t require energy  Uses transport proteins to move high to low concentration Examples: Glucose or amino acids moving from blood into a cell.



27 Active Transport Active Transport - Pumps - phagocytosis - Endocytosis/exocytosis

28 Active transport  ATP (energy) is needed  pump  Moves materials from LOW to HIGH concentration  AGAINST concentration gradient

29 Example-1 ATPase pumps The most common: Na/K pumps  reestablish membrane potential. Present in all cells. Two K + ions are exchanged with 3 Na + ions


31 Example 3: In order to make ATP in the mitochondria, a proton pump (hydrogen ion) is required.


33 Endocytosis Endocytosis Endocytosis“in” Endocytosis: (“Endo” means “in”). invagination Endocytosis is the taking in of molecules or particles by invagination of the cell membrane forming a vesicle. Integrity of plasma membrane is maintained. requires energy. This requires energy. Endocytosis is fallowed by exocytosis on the other side. – Transcytosis, vesicle trafficking, or cytopempsis.

34 Types of endocytosis 1. pinocytosis (cell drinking): small molecules are ingested and a vesicle is immediately formed. This is seen in small intestine cells (villi) large p 2. phagocytosis (cell eating): large particles, (visible with light microscope) are invaginated into the cell (ie: white blood cells ‘eat’ bacteria


36 Phagocytosis Used to engulf large particles such as food, bacteria, etc. into vesicles Called “Cell Eating

37 Capture of a Yeast Cell (yellow) by Membrane Extensions of an Immune System Cell (blue)

38 Receptor-Mediated Endocytosis Some integral proteins have receptors on their surface to recognize & take in hormones, cholesterol, etc.

39 Exocytosis “out” Exocytosis: (“Exo” means “out”.) reverse Exocytosis is the reverse of endocytosis. This is where a cell releases the contents of a vesicle outside of the cell. These contents may be wastes, proteins, hormones, or some other product for secretion. This also requires energy. Example: vesicles from the Golgi fuse with the plasma membrane and the proteins are released outside of the cell.


41 Fusion of vesicle with plasma membrane is mediated by a number of accessory proteins- SNARE protein. Require stimulus and Ca. Exception- Renin from JG cells and PTH from parathyroid gland by decrease in intracellular Ca. Constitutive Secretion- Immunoglobulin from plasma Cells and collagen from fibroblast. Regulated- endocrine gland, pancreatic acinar cells

42 Membrane Transport Proteins 1. Water Channels or Aquaporins (AQPs) – 12 types Amount of water is regulated by No. of AQPs They are known as gated channel although they are pores. Two types a) Aquaporins- only water. b) Aquaglyceroporins- also for small molecules.

43 2- Ion Channels- All cells specially on excitable cells – Neurons and muscle cells Selective and non selective Gated – voltage gated and extracellular agonist or antagonist gated ex – acetylcholine gated cationic specific channel at motor end plate of skeletal muscle.

44 3.Solute Carriers- > 40 types, > 300 transporters. three gps-1. Uniporters- single molecule across the membrane (GLUT ) 2. Symporters- Two or more molecules Ex- Na-k-cl Symporter (Kidney) Na - Glucose Cotransporter. 3. Antiporters- Two or more molecules in opposite directions Ex :Na- H antiporter ( PH regulation) 3Na- Ca, Cl- HCO3
