2 The Cast of Chemicals • The Phospholipid Membrane – Hydrophilic • Dissolve in water due to uneven electrical charge (e.g., salt) – Hydrophobic • Does not dissolve in water due to even electrical charge (e.g., oil) – Lipids are hydrophobic • Contribute to resting and action potentials The Cast of Chemicals • The Phospholipid Membrane –The Phospholipid Bilayer The Cast of Chemicals • Protein – Molecules • Enzymes • Cytoskeleton • Receptors • Special transmembrane proteins – Control resting and action potentials The Cast of Chemicals • Protein – Structure • Amino acids • Concept of alpha carbon and R groups
