Nicely Explained
By Shreya K. on 12. May 2019 for Surface Modifications of Epithelial Cells

Excellently Explained about the transport and clarifies doubts regarding the different transport modes in membranes

By Sam M. on 27. March 2019 for ATPases

I appreciate that the changes were made according to reviews previously posted by students. It helps that the information is staying up-to-date for all users

Great Lecturer - content OK.
By Michael D. on 24. February 2019 for ATPases

In the lecture Thad says that ATPase is a V-type pump, but in the test it is a P-Type pump, which is correct. This pump is called a P-type ion pump because the ATP interactions phosphorylates the transport protein and causes a change in its conformation. There should be a review process to ensure accuracy before these lessons are released. Overall a great lecture, but details like this are important ones not to miss. Thanks!
