Lec 4- 2007 INTRODUCTORY ANIMAL PHYSIOLOGY BIOAP 311/VETBM 346 FALL 2007 OUTLINE - LECTURE 4 Diffusion and Transport (Readings - Chapter 1 excluding Osmosis section) I. Major Topics/Concepts to be covered: 1. The semipermeable membrane. 2. Membrane pores, channels and carriers. 3. Diffusion including mathematical definition. 4. Simple diffusion through the membrane. 5. Facilitated diffusion. 6. Active transport. II. You will have learned the material when you can: 1. Use the equations defining solute diffusion to determine the rates at which various substances will diffuse in solution or across a membrane. 2. Graphically represent simple diffusion, facilitated diffusion and

Draw a graph predicting the relationship of simple diffusion across a membrane to temperature. Do the same for facilitated diffusion and active transport (use the range of O degrees to 80 degrees C.). 2. What determines the specificity of a membrane channel? 3. Which membrane would pass molecules through it faster assuming the same total number, not density of pores - one with a surface area of 2 mm^2 or one of 4 mm^2? file:///C|/WINWORD/COURSES/31107/Lec4-07.htm8/15/2007 10:16:54 AM...

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
