symport

symport

 [sim´port]
a transport mechanism that moves two compounds simultaneously across a cell membrane in the same direction, one compound being transported down a concentration gradient and the other against a gradient. See also antiport and cotransport.

sym·port

(sim'pōrt),
Coupled transport of two different molecules or ions through a membrane in the same direction by a common carrier mechanism (symporter). Compare: antiport, uniport.
