What form the lipid bilayer?

The lipid bilayer of a cell membrane is composed of two layers of phospholipids with polar heads on the outside and nonpolar tails facing inward. It also contains embedded proteins and considerable amounts of cholesterol to maintain membrane fluidity.

The plasma membrane is a bilayer of lipid molecules with protein molecues embedded True or False?

it depends on what you are referring to. the lipid bilayer is exactly what it is two layers compsed of lipids. lipid molecules have two properties: a hydophobi tail and a hydrophilic head. so when the bi layer is put together, it has the tails facing eachter and the heads out to react with water conditions in the body. the membrane is also embedded with proteins of all dffierent kinds that allows ions to cross and this allows for cell communication

How can a lipid bilayer be fluid yet asymetrical?

There are proteins embedded in the membrane also. Some of these proteins exist on the aqueous side (outside) while others are only embedded on the inside. These are called peripheral membrane proteins. Some proteins go span the entire length of the lipid bilayer and are called transmembrane proteins. Peripheral membrane proteins are only temporarily attached and can become free by some types of stresses (i.e. detergents, solvents etc.). Integral membrane proteins are proteins that are permanently attached to the membrane.
