The inner membrane in the mitochondria has many folds called cristae. The advantage of the cristae is that they increase the surface area of the membrane on which oxygen and carbohydrates combine to form ATP.
It is the Capsule, a layer of polysaccharide that protects the bacterial cell. The parts of the cell envelope from inner most to outer most are. Plasma Membrane: Periplasmic Space: Cell Wall: Outer Membrane: Capsule:
The cell membrane is formed from a phospholipid bilayer, with the hydrophobic lipid portions (the tails) on the inner portion and the hydrophilic portion of the phospholipid (the heads) facing the inner and outer surfaces. There are also proteins in… Full Answer
In a dual layer; the tails are facing towards each other, so there is a layer of phospholipid heads on the outer surface of the cell membrane, & another layer of heads on the inner surface of the membrane.
The endoplasmic reticulum is a tubular structure for transportation of materials. It absorbs only selected substances like nutrients at the cell membrane and pushes them to the inner most regions of the cell.
The cell needs to control what enters and leaves. It needs to keep somethings in and other things out. However, only the Selectively cells can enter and go out of the cell! This is why the selectively permeable membrane is… Full Answer
The Nuclear Membrane is made up of 2 lipid bi layers (the inner and outer membranes). The Cell membrane is made up of lipids, proteins, and carbs (the lipids forming a bi layer which integral proteins lie within).
The reason why a lysosome does not digest itself or the cell is because it has an inner membrane that is coated with glycocalyx. This membrane contains poly-lactosamine which prevents the digestive enzymes from gaining access.
The primary proteins of cellular structure (such as in microfilaments or intermediate tubules) is myosin and actin, and sometimes collagen, and all of these are proteins in the cell. Because proteins generally connect to similar structures (aka other proteins), and… Full Answer
