The mode l o f the cell m e m b r a n e p r o p o s e d by Singer and Nicolson [1] was described as a twodimensional viscous solution with fluid propert ies. It has been shown that certain integral proteins of the membrane are able to move within the plane of the membrane , and it has also been shown that not only do the phospholipids of the lipid bilayer display fluid proper t ies but, depending on the kinds of phospholipids present in a specific region, a membrane might be more or less fluid… CONTINUE READING
