The Plasma Membrane


No description

fluid mosaic model process by which the cell expels large particles
phospholipid a solution in which the concentration of dissolved substances is greater than the concentration of dissolved substances inside the cell
hypertonic solution passive transport of materials across the plasma membrane by way of transport proteins
diffusion diffusion of water molecules through a selectively permeable membrane
exocytosis property of the plasma membrane wherein many similar molecules are free to move sideways within their lipid bilayer
endocytosis proteins embedded in the lipid bilaryer of the plasma membrane to move ions and molecules across the membrane
transport protein a solution in which the concentration of dissolved substances is less than the concentration of dissoved substances inside the cell
plasmolysis membrane lipid having an organic section attached to a phosphate group; a polar "head" attached to fatty acid "tails"
active transport process by which large particles enter the cell
isotonic solution diffusion of substances across a selectively permeable membrane
faciliated diffusion a solution in which the concentration of dissolved substances is the same as the concentration of dissolved substances inside the cell
osmosis property of a plasma membrane that maintains the cell's homeostasis by taking in needed substances, eliminating wastes, and preventing harmful substances from entering
hypotonic solution process requiring energy by which cells move materials against a concentration gradient
dynamic equilibrium net, randome movement of particles form an area of higher concentration to an area of lower concentration
turgor pressure process resulting from a drop in turgor pressure as a result of water loss in a cell; the cell shrinks away from the cell wall
passive transport condition of continuous movement but no overall change
contractile vacuole internal pressure of a cell due to water held there by osmotic pressure
selective permeability organelle of some protists that collects excess water from then cell, then contracts and expels the water through a plasma membrane pore
