                                                    1. channel protein
                                                      1. allows a molecule to cross the plasma membrane, they form a channel that allows a substance to move from one side to the other
                                                        1. cystic fibrosis, an inherited disorder is caused by a faulty chloride channel
                                                        2. carrier protein
                                                          1. interacts with a molecule so that it can cross the plasma membrane, they receive a substance and change their shape and this change serves to move the substance across the membrane
                                                            1. without this carrier protein nerve impulse conduction would be impossible
                                                            2. cell recognition protein
                                                              1. are glycoproteins that help the body to recognize when it is being invaded by pathogens so that an immune response can occur
                                                                1. without this recognition pathogens would be able to freely invade the body and hinder its function
                                                                2. receptor protein
                                                                  1. have a shape that allow sonly a specific molecule to bind to it, binding the molecule causes the protein to change its shape and bring cellular response
                                                                    1. coordination of bodies organs is dependent on such signaling molecules
                                                                    2. enzymatic protein
                                                                      1. carry out metabolic reactions directly, catalyzes a specific reaction
                                                                        1. wouldn't be able to maintain a metabolism
