CF mucus

CF is caused by faulty transport protiens in the surface membranes of epithilial cells.

biylayers are favored by phosphplipids           (spherical cluster called a micelles)

because fatty acids are to bulky to fit in

the interior of micelles                                 a lipid bilayer tends to close on itself so that                                                                     no edges are exposed
