The movement of oxygen from an area of high concentration to an area of low concentration is an example of?
The skin swells and puckers during a long bath. This suggests that bath water is a(n) ______ fluid.
The process by which molecules such as glucose are moved into cells along their concentration gradient with the help of membrane-bound carrier protein is called?
Facilitated diffusion differs from ordinary diffusion in that?
The rate of molecular movement is limited by the number of available carrier molecules

________ cells are all of the cells of the body except the reproductive cells (sperm and oocytes)
The ______ typically consists of five or six flattened membranous discs called cisternae.
what do cells do?
-Respond to the environment
-Maintain homeostasis at the cellular level
-Modify structure and function over time
Functions of the cell membrane
regulates exchange with environment:
-Ions and nutrients enter
-waste and cellular products released
Monitors the environment:
-Extracellular fluid composition
-Anchors calls and tissues
Phospholipid Bilayer contains
Hydrophilic heads- toward watery environment, both sides
Hydrophobic fatty-acid tails- Inside membrane
-Barrier to ions and water soluble compounds
- Bind the cell membrane to other structures
cytoskeleton inside the cell
Other cells outside the cell
-Receptive to extracellular molecules called ligands (ions, hormones)
-An example is the binding of insulin to cells and the subsequent absorption of glucose into the cell
- Receptor proteins are VERY specific
Membrane Carbohydrates include
Proteoglycans, Glycoproteins, and Glycolipids:
-extend outside cell membrane
-Form sticky "sugar coat" (Glycocalyx)
