In 11–18, determine an inverse Laplace transform of the given function.
Chapter 7: Membrane Structure and Function Plasma Membrane The plasma membrane is the boundary that separates the living cell from its surroundings. The plasma membrane exhibits selective permeability, allowing some substances to cross it more easily than others. Cellular membranes are fluid mosaics of lipids and proteins Phospholipids are the most abundant lipid in the plasma membrane. Phospholipids are amphipathic molecules, containing hydrophobic and hydrophilic regions. A phospholipid bilayer can exist as a stable boundary between two aqueous compartments. The Fluidity of Membranes Phospholipids in the plasma membrane can move within the bilayer. Most of the lipids, and some proteins, drift laterally. Rarely,
