Who can give me a example about cotransport ? #3#

OpenStudy (beccaboo333):

Welcome to OpenStudy.

OpenStudy (anonymous):

thank u. It's a great web site.

OpenStudy (beccaboo333):

An example could be hydrogen ions being pumped against their gradient allowing the entry of nutrients into the plant cells. So the hydrogen would be cotransporting the nutrients.

OpenStudy (anonymous):

the cotransport means that ATP-powered pump pumps a kinds of solute so that another kinds of solute can enter the cell. do u agree?

OpenStudy (beccaboo333):

yes

OpenStudy (anonymous):

so the cotransport should involve two transport protein?
