5.1 How Is the Structure of a Membrane Related to Its Function? 1. Selectively isolates cell’s contents from outside (phosph o lipids) 2. Regulates exchange of substances in and out (proteins) 3. Communicates with other cells (proteins) 4. Create attachments within & between cells (proteins) 5. Regulate many biochemical reactions (proteins)
