What is a fluid mosiac model?

A model that describes the arrangement and movement of the molecules that make up a cell.


Summarize the fluid mosaic model of the cell membrane?

The lipids molecules that form the membrane are fluid. They can move about relative to one another in a fluid manner. Some of the proteins are also free to move about sothat the mosiac or pattern of lipids and proteins changes. Because of these characteristics scientists call their model of the dynamic cell membrane the fluid the fluid mosiac model.

Why is it called the fluid mosiac model?

The singer and Nicholson molel for the cell membrane structure is called the fluid mossiac model because the lipids are able to move from one location to another by a process called transverse diffusion and there are proteins (intergral and peripheral) that are present in the libid bilayer, which gives it a mossiac appearance.


Who proposed that the membrane is a mosiac of protein molecules bobbing in a fluid bilayer of phospholipids?
