  • Components
    • Glycolipids
      • Carbohydrates covalently bonded to lipids
      • Carbohydrate part is above the bi layer in a watery environment
    • Proteins
      • Throughout the membrane
      • Embedded in the bi layer in 2 ways
        • On the surface only
          • Receptors
        • Span across the whole bi layer
          • Carrier and channel proteins
    • Glycoproteins
      • Carbohydrates attached to extrinsic proteins
    • Phospholipids
      • Hydrophyllic heads
      • Forms a bi layer
      • Hydrophobic tails
    • Cholesterol
      • Very hydrophobic
        • Prevent water loss
      • Within phospholipid bi layer
