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.
[sym- + L. porto, to carry]

This process is mediated by the sodium-iodine symporter (NIS), a 13-transmembrane domain glycoprotein that relies on the sodium ([Na.sup.+]) electrochemical gradient created by the [Na.sup.+]/K+ ATPase and allows active concentration of iodine by electrogenic symport of sodium (2:1 [Na.sup.+] to [I.sup.-] stoichiometry).
