  • Phospholipid Bilayer
    • hydrophilic heads and hydrophobic tails
    • creates partially permeablemembrane
    • keeps membrane fluid yet stable
    • Cell MembraneStructure
      • Glycoproteins
        • protein + carbohydrate chain
        • act as cell receptors and therefore play a role in cell comms
        • acting as recognition sites for the immune system, helping cells adhere together to form tissues and providing stability to the cell membrane
          • Glycolipids
            • lipid + carbohydrate chain
      • Glycolipids
        • lipid + carbohydrate chain
      • Cholesterol
        • lipid molecule with same properties as phospholipid
