The question is(off of AP Bio 2003 exam): Describe how the properties of water contributr to the plasma membrane structure.
any help would be great, thanks!
Just read about proporties of phospholipids:nonpolar hydrophobic tails and hydrphilic polar head…in any basic biochemistry textbook u should find the answer
Search for hydrophobic effect.
and find out the pics of cell membrane(fosfolipid bilayer)
google formation of so-called hidrophobic bonds. These "bonds" are the most important in maintaining membrane integrity.
