In this lecture on membranes,
we'll begin to put our knowledge of macromolecules together
to form a membrane that can communicate
with the outside world of the cell.
As well as explore internal components of the cell
that maintain structure.
So by the end of this lecture, you should be able to
explain how proteins, lipids and carbohydrates
are involved in the structure of the cell membrane.
As well as explain how fluidity is maintained
in the cell membrane. It's not a static unit.
Then we'll be able to describe the roles of
each of the three types of cytoskeletal elements
in maintaining cell's shapes and
transporting molecules throughout the cell.
And in addition, you'll be able to explain
how cells stick together to associate and form tissues.
