  50. scientist who first performed research re solubility of oil in water
    ben franklin
  51. up to date model of biological membrane developed by singer and Nicolson?
    plasma membrane isn't still but somewhat flexible. it's flexible because lipid components. membranes contain a mosaic of proteins
  52. fluidity of membrane is because of
  53. structural features of phospholipid
    2 fatty acid chains plus a polar phosphate
  54. role of cholesterol in the cell membrane
    keeps small molecules from getting through, also maintain optimum fluidity

    • structure
    • also recognition, communication, transport
  56. integrated proteins
    bound to the hydrophobic interior
  57. peripheral proteins
    lie on either side of the membrane but are not bound to its hydrophobic interior
  58. semipermeability
    biological membranes are permeable to H2O and hydrophobic materials, however, some other molecules can not pass
  59. what molecules are moving down their concentration gradients through the membrane without using the protein channel?
    Gases - O2, CO2
  60. main differences between facilitate diffusion and active transport
    facilitated uses proteins to get through, active transport uses proteins and energy
  61. example of facilitate transport
