Transport protein are responsible for cellular  transport, a damaged protein would fail to accomplish that role  depending on the cell type and the kind of alteration in the property of damaged  protein. If so-called damaged protein is toxic then cell would die immediately. If such protein accomplishes partial function then cell would progressively become less and less functional and would eventually undergo apoptosis or cell death.
