Term Detail
GO term:antiporter activity
Synonym: antiport
Synonym: countertransporter activity
Synonym: exchanger
Synonym: exchange transporter activity
Synonym: porter
Synonym: solute:solute antiporter activity
Synonym: solute:solute exchange
GO id:GO:0015297
Definition:Enables the active transport of a solute across a membrane by a mechanism whereby two or more species are transported in opposite directions in a tightly coupled process not directly linked to a form of energy other than chemiosmotic energy. The reaction is: solute A(out) + solute B(in) = solute A(in) + solute B(out).
