Abstract

This Teaching Resource provides and describes two animated lessons that illustrate general properties of transport proteins. The lesson called “transport protein classes” depicts major classes and subclasses of transport proteins. The “transporters, mechanism of action” lesson explains how transporters and P class ATPase (adenosine triphosphatase) pumps function. These animations serve as valuable resources for any collegiate-level course that describes these important factors. Courses that might use them include introductory biology, biochemistry, cell biology, physiology, and biophysics.
