Facilitated Diffusion

Facilitated diffusion is the movement of hydrophilic molecules from a high concentration to a lower concentration across the plasma membrane. Due to the partially hydrophobic nature of the membrane, facilitated diffusion requires a protein. As you watch, pay attention to how transport proteins facilitate diffusion. Make sure you can distinguish between osmosis, simple diffusion, and facilitated diffusion.
