Membrane is thin and Êsemi permeable to allow Êmaterials to enter and exit easily. In addition, it Êconsist Êof protein Êand phospholipid bilayer, Êprotein layer release ÊproteinÊÊmolecules which act as carriers across the membrane.Ê Whereas, phospholipid bilayer Êallow small molecules such as water molecules to pass through quicker.
