There occur three different types of transport proteins; first type is the uniport transport pass, a single type of molecule down its concentration gradient, while symporters are cotransport proteins which allow the movement of both types of ions in the same direction outside to inside.
In October 2012, four Uniport (University of Port Harcourt) students were stripped naked, severely beaten and burnt alive by vigilantes for allegedly stealing BlackBerry phones and laptops.

(33) Although mitochondria participate in [Ca.sup.+2] buffering at relatively elevated [Ca.sup.+2], the affinity of the uniport carrier for [Ca.sup.+2] is low, and mitochondria may play only a minor role in buffering [Ca.sup.2+] under normal conditions.
What makes this all possible is that much of the production work is done by on-site partners: Magna Chassis Systems for the frame ("tridion safety cell"); Siemens VDO Automotive for the cockpit module (including installation); ThyssenKrupp Automotive for the rear axle and final drive module; Plastal for the body panels and trim; Magna Uniport for closure panels.
