This Editorial Review analyzes the adequacy of the strategies that are commonly used to establish whether the active transport of a solute does or does not occur by secondary active transport. First, the energetics of noncoupled (passive) diffusion, primary active transport, secondary active transport (coupled diffusion), and solvent drag are briefly described. Second, the kinetics of noncoupled and coupled diffusion processes are discussed. Third, the special difficulties of identifying… CONTINUE READING
