According to the Transport Commission (TC) system, all transport proteins may be divided into the following classes:


Examples: ion channels, porins.

Electrochemical Potential-driven transporters

Examples: uniporters, symporters and antiporters.

Primary Active Transporters

Examples: Na+-K+ ATPase, H+ ATPase, ABC Transporter Superfamily and CFTR channel.

Group Translocators
Transport Electron Carriers
Auxiliary Transport Proteins
