Ion pumps are assemblies of integral membrane proteins, like ion channels, that modulate ion transport into and out of a cell or organelle, leading to generation of electrical signals. Ion pumps, however, work against their concentration gradient, so require energy input, but the energy can also be derived from the concentration gradient of another ion.
