Unformatted text preview: 4. What are the main molecular components of biomembranes, and how are these components arranged within the membrane to give a membrane its unique structure and function? 5. Discuss the roles that lipids play in determining the physical properties (fluidity, viscosity, permeability, deformability) of biomembranes. 6. Describe the experimental strategy you would use to analyze the protein composition of the PM of a particular cell type, such as the human RBC. 6. Summarize the main steps involved in the transcription, translation, post-translation modification and exocytosis of a secreted protein such as insulin. 7. Compare and contrast the principal mechanisms that a eukaryotic cell uses to regulate the transport of small molecular weight solutes. 8. Summarize the experimental evidence that tends to support the concept of the Fluid Mosaic model for biomembranes....
