9/4/15: Membrane transport and signaling 1. Plasma Membrane Review a. Phospholipid bilayer i. Trans-membrane proteins ii. Some carbs, cholesterol and glycolipids iii. Fluid mosaic model: reflects the allowable movement of proteins within the phospholipid bilayer b. Polarity: any molecule carrying charge or having an unequal distribution of electrons (like dissolves like) i. Water, ions, carbs ii. Polar: hydrophilic, lipophobic iii. Non-polar: hydrophobic, lipophilic iv. Phospholipids -Polar, hydrophilic head, nonpolar, hydrophobic tail c. Membranes restrict movement i. Permeability: membranes are selectively permeable -Completely permeable to nonpolar molecules O2, CO2, lipids -Selectively permeable to polar molecules Ions, water, most proteins ii. Getting across the plasma membrane -Unassisted transport: with concentration gradient only Simple diffusion: substances diffuse freely across the membrane from greater to lesser concentration, nonpolar molecules Rate depends on solubility, surface area and

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
