Chapter 6- Cell Membranes  Secondary Active Transport- brings glucose into the blood stream  Fluid Mosaic Model- general structure of membranes. Phospholipids form a bilayer in which proteins float. Hydrophilic head/hydrophobic tails/hydrophilic head  Membranes vary in lipid composition, chain length, degree of sat and phosphate groups  Phosphate functional group, charged, works well with water  Fluidity depends on temperature and liquid composition: 37 degrees C  Membranes contain proteins: o Peripheral- Do not penetrate the bilayer o Integral- Hydrophobic, hydrophilic regions, can go across bilayer  Proteins and lipids- Van Der Waals forces (non-covalent)  Anchored proteins are covalently attached  Transmembrane proteins go all the way through the bilayer. Have one or more domains  BONUS: 7 kJ/mole breaks phosphate bonds in ATP  Membranes have carbs on outer layer: o Glycolipids- carbs+ lipids o Glycoproteins- carbs+ proteins  Cells arrange by cell recognition and adhesion. Sponge Cells- Ex: When you cut yourself, cells heal back together  Homotypic: Same molecule from both cells stick out and for a bond  Heterotypic: different proteins  Cell Junctions: o Tight junctions: help ensure and form a seal for directional movement of materials. o Desmosomes: link cells tightly, permit materials to move o Gap junctions: allow communication  Selective Permeability- (permeable and impermeable) o Passive transportation: no outside energy, higher to lower (diffusion and osmosis) o Active transportation: requires ATP help  Diffusion (passive)- random movement towards equilibrium- no “net” movement o Diffusion rate depends on:  Temperature of solution  Concentration gradient  Diameter of molecules or ions in solute o Simple Diffusion- higher concentration to lower concentration  Lipid-soluble passes easily (not sodium chloride)  Polar and charged molecules cannot easily pass  Osmosis- diffusion of water o Depends on number of particles present, not type  Hypertonic: more solute particles outside than inside, water moves outside, cell shrinks (crenation)  Hypotonic: more solute particles inside cell than outside, water moves inside, cell bursts 2  Isotonic: equal amount of solute particles  Facilitated diffusion (still passive)- o channel proteins: lined with polar amino acids in bilayer (bridge) o carrier proteins: carrier gets particles in membrane (taxi)  Ion channels: channel proteins with hydrophilic pores. Most are gated. Open to potassium and sodium *Mostly happens in neurons (lets sodium enter) * 3
