Keyword - Sodium transport (KW-0739)

Keywords navigation



Protein involved in the movement of sodium ions across energy-transducing cell membranes. Primary active sodium transport is coupled to an energy-yielding chemical reaction such as ATP hydrolysis. Secondary active transport utilizes the voltage and ion gradients produced by the primary transport to drive the cotransport of other ions or molecules. These may be transported in the same (symport) or opposite (antiport) direction.
