What are transporters?

Some articles on transporters:

Sodium:neurotransmitter Symporter
... Sodiumneurotransmitter symporters is a family of neurotransmitter transporters ... Plasma membrane neurotransmitter transporters fall into two structurally and mechanistically distinct families ... The majority of the transporters constitute an extensive family of homologous proteins that derive energy from the co-transport of Na+ and Cl-, in order to transport ...
The Transporters
... The Transporters is an animation series produced by Catalyst Pictures Ltd designed to help children with autism aged between two to eight years old recognise and understand emotions ... The Transporters is based on the idea that children with autism may find faces confusing because they are unpredictable, because the autistic brain cannot cope with unpredictability ... The Transporters therefore focuses on mechanical vehicles that only travel along tracks, because they are highly predictable systems ...
Neurotransmitter Transporters
... Neurotransmitter transporters are a class of membrane transport proteins that span the cellular membranes of neurons ... There are more than twenty types of neurotransmitter transporters ... Vesicular transporters move neurotransmitters into synaptic vesicles, regulating the concentrations of substances within them ...
ATP-binding Cassette Family - Subfamilies - ABCB
... The ABCB subfamily is composed of four full transporters and two half transporters ... This is the only human subfamily to have both half and full types of transporters ...
Major Facilitator Family
... The Major Facilitator Superfamily (MFS) transporters are secondary carriers transporting small solutes in response to chemiosmotic ion gradients ... investigations have revealed the occurrence of dozens of families of primary and secondary transporters ... ABC family permeases are in general multicomponent primary active transporters, capable of transporting both small molecules and macromolecules in response to ATP hydrolysis the MFS transporters are single-polyp ...
