Describe the fluid mosaic structure of cellular membranes.
Our cells are bounded by delicate cell membranes that separate living cells from their abiotic environment. Cell membranes control what enters and leaves our cells. Eukaryotic cells, like ours, are further subdivided into membrane compartments, the organelles, that conduct the various functions of our cells. The membranes surrounding and within our cellular organelles control what enters and leaves the organelles and further subdivide organelles into smaller, separate compartments, each with its own special chemistry.
To post your answer.
