What are the special structures in the cell membrane that allow water and sugar pass through it made of?
These special structures are called protein gates or protein channels. Water is able to diffuse through the cell membrane since it is a small molecule. However, there are channels called aquaporins that allow water to enter the cell. A glucose molecule cannot just diffuse into a cell. There are glucose channels on the surface of the cell membrane that bind glucose molecules and allow them to enter the cell.
If by why you mean how, then the answer lies in the fact that cell membranes have special transport channels for different materials. Essentially, the phospholipid bilayer means that the outside of the cell membrane is charged (polar) and the inside is uncharged (non-polar). Whilst uncharged molecules can easily squeeze in between the phospholipids, the charged molecules have a problem. Because they carry a charge it means that they cannot enter the area in the…
