Plasma Membrane and Fluid Dynamics
Powerpoint Lecture

The plasma membrane is the boundary that seperates the living cell from its nonliving environment. As such, it must have the ability to control what enters or leaves the cell. This powerpoint covers the basic phospholipid bilayer composition of the membrane, the different types of protein channels, as wel as the carbohydrate markers found on the membrane surface. Students will also learn about the mechanics of diffusion, osmosis, and active transport.

Essential concepts: Plasma membrane, fluid dynamics, cell membrane, osmosis, diffusion, facilitated diffusion, active transport, hypertonic, hypotonic, isotonic, tonicity, phospholipid bilayer, integral proteins, peripheral proteins, carbohydrate markers, cholesterol, fluid mosaic model, hydrophobic, hydrophilic, phagocytosis, pinocytosis.
