What is the Major component of the cell membrane of a fungus?
The cell wall of fungi is mostly composed of chitin. True fungi do not have cellulose in their walls. The cell membrane of fungi is composed of lipids (phospholipids, glycolipids and cholesterol) and proteins. ...

Asked in Cell or Plasma Membranes
What are cell membranes and cell wall composed of?
The cell membrane and the cell wall is are composed of two different things. The cell membrane is made from phospholipid bilayers that becomes flexible by cholesterols. The cell wall is a rigid structure that surrounds the cell membrane that is either composed of cellulose, chitin, or peptidoglycan depending on the cell. ...
