Abstract

Since the introduction of the carrier concept by Osterhout in 1935 [8] this notion has been used in the discussion of biological transport phenomena in increasing measure. This is mainly due to two types of observations: 1. pronounced structural specificity of penetration, resembling in many cases the stereo-specificity of enzymatic reaction and indicating an essential role of chemical reactivity; 2. observations pointing to a limited transport capacity, i.e. saturation kinetics and competition.
