ACTIVE TRANSPORT

the motion of ions or compounds all over a cell membrane layer by a tool which demands energy. The motion might rely upon a particular kinship between the ions, a metabolous response, or another energy-devouring activity. Active transport incorporates the mobility of salt and potassium ions all over the membrane layer of a nerve cell.

ACTIVE TRANSPORT: "Today in class, the children learned about osmosis and active transport."
