Homework #2 on carriers, channels and mitochondria 1. Complete the concept map (hint towards successful studying: you should be able to explain every word on the map with at least one sentence) 2. Name 3 differences and 3 commonalities between carriers (transporters) and channels (pores) differences: carriers have a specific binding site, pores a selectivity filter speed of transport (transport rate of pores is about 1000 fold faster than carriers carriers (syn and antiporters) can transport more than one type of molecule conformational change is induced by outside factors (change in membrane potential, ligand etc) transport through porese can only go down the concentration gradient similarities: saturable transport that reaches a maximal transport rate integral membrane protein is required (regulated transport) allow charged/polar/large molecules to cross the membrane\ specific for the molecules to be transported
