1. Plasma menbrane encloses the cell, defines its boundaries maintains differences between cytosol and extarcellular space. 2. Within the cell, the membranes of ER, Golgi, mitochondria, choloroplast maintain their essential contents from that of cytosol. 3. Membranes contain specialized proteins which can synthesize ATP, the energy required to transport solutes, ions across cells. 4.
