Cell Membrane Fatty Acids and Health

  title={Cell Membrane Fatty Acids and Health},
  author={Jihan Seid Hussein},
All living cells, prokaryotic and eukaryotic, have a plasma membrane that encloses their contents and serves as a semi-porous barrier to the outside environment. The basic matrix of the plasma membrane consists essentially of two sheets (a bilayer) of phospholipids molecules. Among the significant components of cell membranes are the phospholipids, which contain fatty acids. The types of fatty acids in the diet determine the types of fatty acids that are available to the composition of cell… CONTINUE READING
