What is the double layer of phospholipids called?
The double layer of phospholipids is called the phospholipid bilayer. It forms the basis of every membrane, both the plasma membrane and all internal membranes. The idea that the bilayer has protein molecules embedded in it is the essence of the fluid mosaic model of the cell membrane. ...

What is a lipid bilayer?
A lipid bilayer is a double layer membrane formed from phospholipids. Phospholipids are composed of a polar head group and non-polar fatty acid tails. The arrangement of the phospholipids makes the cell membrane permeable. ...
