Membrane Omics Analysis ServicesOnline Inquiry
The life activities of living organisms are mainly carried out by cells as the basic unit. There is a membrane on the surface of the cell that separates each cell from its surroundings, maintains a relatively stable internal cellular environment, and has a protective effect on the cell. At the same time, the constant exchange and transport of substances between the cell and its surroundings also relies heavily on the cell membrane. In addition, various metabolic activities in living cells are closely related to the structure and function of the cell membrane.
Phospholipids, cholesterol, glycolipids, there are about 109 lipid molecules on the plasma membrane of each animal cell, that is, about 5x106 lipid molecules per square micrometer of the plasma membrane.
Cell membrane proteins (including enzymes) are mainly bound to membrane lipids in two forms. There are two types of proteins: intrinsic proteins and extrinsic proteins. Intrinsic proteins are covalently bound to the hydrophobic portion of phospholipids with polar ends, both inside and outside the membrane. Extrinsic proteins are bound to the outer ends of intrinsic proteins by non-covalent bonds or to the hydrophilic head of phospholipid molecules, such as carriers, specific receptors, enzymes, and surface antigens.
Membrane sugars include glycoproteins and glycolipids. Membrane sugars are mainly oligosaccharide riddles and polysaccharide chains, which are covalently bonded to membrane lipids or proteins to form glycolipids and glycoproteins. The majority of these glycan chains are exposed on the outside (non-cytoplasmic) side of the membrane. Polysaccharide-protein complexes, cell shell cell coat and other monosaccharides sorted on specific as cell or protein markers - antigenic determinants clusters, recognizable, bound to transmitters, hormones, etc.
