The Cell Membrane A Web Adventure The Cell Membrane STRUCTURE AND FUNCTION The Cell Membrane Up until now you knew that the function of the cell membrane was to separate
the inside of the cell from its outside. In some pictures you have seen, the cell membrane may have looked like this: Scientists thought that this is what it looked like for a long time. Then the electron microscope came along and they were able to see the cell membrane. Below is a picture of how the cell membrane looked to them.
Use your book and other resources to find out why the cell membrane is so important to all living things. The Cell Membrane Scientists were then able to break apart the cell membrane and find out what chemicals were in it. The current best model of what a cell membrane looks
like is in the figure below. As you can see it is made up of two major parts. http://cellbiology.med.unsw.edu.au/units/science/lecture0803.htm Electron Micrograph of the Plasma Membrane

Membrane Structure and Function The Cell Membrane Use your book and other resources to explain the following: 15. Why are so many different types of membrane proteins needed?
16. Explain the difference between integral and peripheral proteins with regard to structure and function. Explain the role that primary structure plays. 17. Is the plasma (cell) membrane homogeneous? 18. What is the function of glycoproteins? 19. What is the function of glycolipids?
It is the R groups of the amino acids that determine the location of the protein's side chains in a cell membrane. http://www.new-science-press.com/browse/protein/illustrations/ud/ http://home.earthlink.net/~dayvdanls/cell_membranes.htm
The plasma membrane includes three distinct varieties of proteins. Transmembranal (or integral) proteins with hydrophilic ends and hydrophobic midsection, peripheral proteins which are half hydrophilic and half hydrophobic, and surface proteins which are hydrophilic.
The Cell Membrane TRANSPORT Transport One of the major functions of the plasma membrane is transport. Go to the following web sites to learn more
about how molecules, ions, and other materials get into and out of the cell. Membrane Transport Membrane Transport tutorial Transport In and Out of Cells Transport Animation
Transport 1. Why is the movement of materials through the plasma membrane essential for life? 2. What is meant by the term "concentration gradient"? 3. Why is it difficult for a large hydrophilic molecule to pass through a lipid bilayer? What stops it?
4. Explain the differences between a symport and an antiport. PASSIVE TRANSPORT Taking the Easy Way Out (or In) Passive Transport
Answer the following questions. 1. Why is the plasma membrane considered to be selectively permeable? 2. Why are membrane proteins considered to be selectively permeable? 3. Name and describe the 3 types of passive transport. 4. You learned that water diffuses through the plasma
membrane. Is this what actually happens? Explain how water gets across the membrane. Go to this site to learn more. Passive Transport 5. Visit these sites to learn the importance of aquaporins in all organisms. List some of the roles
aquaporins play in different types of cells and their role in disease. Aquaporin: A Miracle That Can Change the World Roles of Aquaporins http://virtuallaboratory.colorado.edu/Biofundamentals/lectureNotes/Topic2E_Membranes.htm

Consider the following questions. 1. Which of the following do you think would transport molecules across a membrane faster, a carrier, a channel, or a pump? Explain your reasoning. 2. When would a carrier protein release a bound (hydrophobic) molecule? 3. Why doesn't an aquaporin channel allow a Na+ ion
to pass through it? 4. In considering the evolution of wall-less organisms, how might the expression of aquaporins be important? Passive Transport Osmosis - a special type of passive transport 1. What is osmosis and why does it occur?
2. Explain the relationship between osmotic concentration and the following terms: a. hypoosmotic / hypotonic b. hyperosmotic / hypertonic c. isoosmotic / isotonic 3. Which way will water move if the inside of the cell is either a, b, or c in question 2?
