Clues

  • Allow larger molecules of a specific shape to pass through the phospholipid bilayer (7, 8)
  • Gives membranes stability and fits between fatty acids (11)
  • Move substances across the membrane, changing to the shape of the molecule (7, 8)
  • Some allow hormones to bind with the cell so that response can occur, important in allowing drugs to bind (8, 5)
  • Where phospholipid molecules have a carbohydrate part attached (11)
  • Where protein molecules have a carbohydrate part attached (13)
