These animations depict generalities of intercellular transport. The animation called “permeability and transport” demonstrates the permeability of four classes of molecules. The “gap junctions” animation shows how these intercellular complexes exclude large factors while they allow small factors to diffuse between cells. These animations serve as useful resources for any collegiate-level course that describes these processes. Courses that might use them include biochemistry, biophysics, cell biology, introductory biology, and physiology.
