Proteins are embedded in the phospholipds bilayers. Experimental data have indicated that the in this model are securely held to the phospholipids, making the structure very stable. Membrane is made up of fat and protein. Polar means charged. Fluid Mosaic Model picture from cell bio book Polar heads outside, non-polar tails inside Proteins have channels that allow certain materials in Polar substances cannot cross membrane (cannot dissolve in fat) so they have to use channels Cholesterol is fat and can cross membranes...
