Caption: From left: Larger molecules such as glucose use a specific transporter protein. Smaller molecules and ions can enter through a nonspecific transporter or channel. Soluble molecules and water can pass through the bilipid membrane by osmosis, or in the case of water, through a protein known as an aquaporin.

Release details: Model release not required. Property release not required.
