What do facilitated diffusion and active transport have in common? What are the differences between them?

1 year ago

Facilitated diffusion can be confused with active transport because in both processes there is participation of membrane proteins. 

In active transport however the transported substance moves against its concentration gradient and with energy spent. Facilitated diffusion is a passive transport in favor of the concentration gradient and it does not require energy.
