*PLEASE URGENT HELP - FLUID MOSAIC MODEL*

Postby clareloveh » Fri Mar 13, 2009 12:59 am

hello,
i am a gr. 11 student who is doing an assignment on fluid-mosaic models

i need to explain in "exceptional" detail how the fluid mosaid model and cell membrane is related to FAMILY DOCTORS and MEDICINE.

i've already contacted 8 doctors, but none of them responded back :cry:
i've been trying to come up with possible answers but i'm stuck
the only one i've come up with is that the membrane transports thing in and out of cell such as bacterias, that could make the cell sick and the person sick,

how can i develop more on this, and any new ideas?

PLEASE HELP, any info in grealy appreciated!!!
thanks in advance!

Of course they won't answer you. Talk about receptors, selective permeability and bacteria and viruses. I'm sure you can find diseases etc that relate to it.

Maybe you're told to make analogous relationships. If that's the case, the cell membrane could also act as a protective barrier that regulates the entry and exit of substances. Without the cell membrane, the entire cell and its contents would be affected. Same as doctors, they don't just let patients take medicines without proper diagnosis, prescriptions and the effects of the drugs on us so that we could at least prevent any untoward incidents that could rise from improper or self-medicating tendencies.

Hi i am a grade 11 student and today we spoke about the Fluid mosaic model in my Biology class. So I :?: just want to find out more about this model , the finer details about the structure and the contents of the model.
