Membrane lipids

Definition

Membrane lipids are lipids involved in forming the structure of biological membranes – both the cell membrane and intracellular membranes – and in membrane function, namely compartmentalization of biological processes. Membrane lipids consist primarily of phospholipids, glycolipids and cholesterol, which can be arranged in bilayers and organized with integral and peripheral membrane proteins to generate functioning membranes.
