1Facilitated diffusion requires
B)carrier proteins.
C)lipid carriers.
D)carbohydrate carriers.
E)lipid or carbohydrate carriers.

2Facilitated diffusion occurs
A)into the cell only.
B)out of the cell only.
C)in either direction depending on the temperature.
D)in either direction depending on the concentration gradient of the molecule.
E)in either direction depending on the size of the molecule.

3Facilitated diffusion is used to transport
