Group Translocation

Group translocation is a transport process that chemically alters a molecule during its passage through the cytoplasmic membrane (figure 3.30). Consequently, uptake of that molecule does not alter the concentration gradient. As an example, glucose and several other sugars are phosphorylated during their transport into the cell by the phosphotransferase system. The energy expended to phosphorylate the sugar can be regained when that sugar is later broken down to provide energy.

Transporters of this type allow a proton into the cell and simultaneously either (a) bring along another substance or (b) expel a substance.

You Are What You Eat

Nutrition is a matter that people spend their careers learning about and requires volumes of books to explain. My objective is to instruct you how to consume a healthy nutritional diet that aids your body in burning off fat instead of storing it. You do not require overwhelming science to get this.
