Fluid mosaic model

Post by hannahzarzar » Thu May 19, 2011 12:04 am

According to the fluid mosaic model of membrane structure________:
A) phospholipids flip-flop between the bilayers to maintain fluidity.
B) proteins form a coat on the outer and inner surfaces of the membrane.
C) the membrane is a mosaic of proteins and carbohydrate.
D) proteins form the core of the membrane with a fluid coating of phospholipid.
E) both phospholipid and many membrane proteins can diffuse laterally throughout the membrane.


I chose D but I am wrong. I think it may be A or E. Confused. Plese help- thanks.

Cis or trans? That's what matters.
