Membrane Lipids

Membrane Lipids Biological membranes consist of a lipid bilayer to which proteins and carbohydrates may be associated or covalently linked. Membrane lipids are lipids involved in forming the structure of biological membranes – both the cell membrane and intracellular membranes – and in membrane function, namely compartmentalization of biological processes. Membrane lipids consist primarily of … Read moreMembrane Lipids

Lipids- Properties, Structure, Classification and Functions

Lipids- Properties, Structure, Classification and Functions Lipids are a heterogeneous group of organic compounds that are insolub­le in water and soluble in non-polar organic solvents. They naturally occur in most plants, animals, microorganisms and are used as cell membrane components, energy storage molecules, insulation, and hormones. Properties of Lipids Lipids may be either liquids or … Read moreLipids- Properties, Structure, Classification and Functions
