6.) The process of glucose transport can be modeled as follows: We suppose that the glucose transporter (T) has two conformational states, Ti and Te, with its glucose binding site exposed on the cell interior (subscript i or exterior (subscript e) of the membrane, respectively. The glucose on the interior Gi can bind with Ti and the glucose on the exterior can bind with Te to form the complex Ci or Ce, respectively. Finally, a conformational change transforms Ci into Ce and vice versa. These statements are summarized as follows:
