Term Name: secondary active transmembrane transporter activity Search Ontology:
Synonyms:
  • active transporter
  • coupled carrier
  • electrochemical potential-driven transporter activity
  • energizer of outer membrane receptor-mediated transport activity
  • galactose/glucose (methylgalactoside) porter activity
  • heavy metal ion porter activity
  • ion-gradient-driven energizer activity
  • multidrug endosomal transmembrane transporter activity
  • nitrite/nitrate porter activity
  • porter activity
  • porters
  • secondary carrier-type facilitators
Definition: Enables the transfer of a solute from one side of a membrane to the other, up its concentration gradient. The transporter binds the solute and undergoes a series of conformational changes. Transport works equally well in either direction and is driven by a chemiosmotic source of energy, not direct ATP coupling. Secondary active transporters include symporters and antiporters. (3)
