Details for transporter activity
7
Gene ontology ID
GO:0005215
Definition
Enables the directed movement of substances (such as macromolecules, small molecules, ions) into, out of or within a cell, or between cells
Comment
Some transporters, such as certain members of the SLC family, are referred to as 'carriers'; however GO uses carrier with a different meaning: a carrier binds to and transports the substance (see GO:0140104 molecular carrier activity), whereas a transporter forms some pore that allows the passing of molecules.
Synonyms
1. carrier
