Figure 7.1 5) peripheral protein Answer: D Topic: Concept 7.1 Skill: Knowledge/Comprehension 6) cholesterol Answer: E Topic: Concept 7.1 Skill: Knowledge/Comprehension 7) fiber of the extracellular matrix Answer: A Topic: Concept 7.1 Skill: Knowledge/Comprehension 8) microfilament of the cytoskeleton Answer: C Topic: Concept 7.1 Skill: Knowledge/Comprehension 9) glycolipid Answer: B Topic: Concept 7.1 Skill: Knowledge/Comprehension 3 10) When biological membranes are frozen and then fractured, they tend to break along the middle of the bilayer. The best explanation for this is that A) the integral membrane proteins are not strong enough to hold the bilayer together. B) water that is present in the middle of the bilayer freezes and is easily fractured. C) hydrophilic interactions between the opposite membrane surfaces are destroyed on freezing....
