draws energy not from ATP, but from an electrochemical gradient of a solute such as a gradient of Na+, ATP is required but it is not the immediate source of energy—it is employed to create an electrochemical gradient
the difference in osmotic pressure that arises between two solutions on either side of the cell membrane or epithelium because the two solutions differ in their concentrations of nonpermeating protein solutes. Because the solutes can’t cross the membrane, they are a “fixed” difference in osmotic pressure between solutions
is solution A had a lower osmotic pressure than solution B, A is HYPOsmotic
: is solution B has a higher osmotic pressure than solution A, B is HYPERosmotic
specific water channel proteins that provide an avenue for water.
Words From Our Students
"StudyBlue is great for studying. I love the study guides, flashcards, and quizzes. So extremely helpful for all of my classes!"
Alice, Arizona State University
"I'm a student using StudyBlue, and I can 100% say that it helps me so much. Study materials for almost every subject in school are available in StudyBlue. It is so helpful for my education!"
Tim, University of Florida
"StudyBlue provides way more features than other studying apps, and thus allows me to learn very quickly! I actually feel much more comfortable taking my exams after I study with this app. It's amazing!"
Jennifer, Rutgers University
"I love flashcards but carrying around physical flashcards is cumbersome and simply outdated. StudyBlue is exactly what I was looking for!"
