Organic Molecules – Lipids (Fats, Phospholipids , Waxes & Steroids) Phospholipids Phospholipids are a major component of all cell membranes. Most phospholipids contain a diglyceride as the tail, and a phosphate group for head. Hydrocarbon tails ___________ , but phosphate heads are _____________ . So phospholipids are soluble in both water and oil. Tails from both layers facing inward and the heads facing outward = _________________.

Organic Molecules – Lipids (Fats, Phospholipids, Waxes & Steroids ) Waxes Do not have a hydrophilic head: so completely water insoluble. Steroids The central core of a cholesterol molecule (4 fused rings) is shared by all steroids. Cholesterol is precursor to our ____ hormones and Vitamin ___. Our cell membranes contain cholesterol (in between the phospholipids) to help keep membrane “fluid” even when exposed to cooler temperatures.
