Membranes

Definition

Membranes, including the cell or plasma membrane and cytoplasmic membranes, serve to contain the contents of cells and their organelles, and consist of lipids and proteins. The lipids – which include phospholipids, glycolipids and sterols – form a bilayer, in which hydrophobic phospholipid tails join end to end, leaving the hydrophilic heads exposed to the outside.
