Nonliving substance in which animal cells are imbedded; is composed of protein and ploysaccharides.
Extracellular Matrix (ECM)
Model for the plasma membrane based on the changing location and pattern of protein molecules in a fluid phospholipid bilayer.
Fluid-Mosaic Model
Lipid in plasma membranes that bears a carbohydrate chain attached to a hydrophobic tail.
Protein in plasma membranes that bears a carbohydrate chain.
Protein that forms a channel to allow a particular molecule or ion to cross the plasma membrane.
Channel Protein
Use of a plasma membrane carrier protein to move a molecule or ion from a region of lower concentration to one of higher concentration; it opposes equilibrium and requires energy.
Active Transport
Junction between cells in which the adjacent plasma membranes do not touch but are held together by intercellular filaments attached to buttonlike thickenings.
Adhesion Junction
Channel protein through which water can diffuse across a membrane.
Movement of elements in an organism in large amount.
Bulk Transport
Glycoprotein that helps the body defend itself against pathogens.
Cell Recognition Protein
Protein that combines with and transports a molecule or ion across the plasma membrane.
Carrier Protein
Structure that surrounds a plant, protistan, fungal, or bacterial call and maintains the cell's shape and rigidity.
Cell Wall
A steroid found in animal plasma membrane and from which other types of steroids are dervied.
