Flashcards in Specialized Membranes Deck (10)
prevent solutes from leaking into the space between cells
found in epithelial cells
bind adjacent cells by anchoring to their cytoskeletons
found at the interface between two laters of epithelial tissue
have a similar function to desmosomes but their main function is to attach epithelial cells to underlying (base meant) membranes
require integral membrane proteins to save as transported or channels for these substrates
particles flowing in opposite directions in a secondary active transport
particles flowing in the same direction in a secondary active transport
contains numerous inholdings (cristae)
which increases the available surface area for the integral preotines
encloses the mitochondrialmatrix where the critic acid cycle produces high energy election carriers used in the electron transport chain.
highly permeable due to many large pores that allow for the passage of ions and small proteins.
Surrounds the inner mitondrial membrane with small inter membrane space in between two layers
must have both an extracellular and intracellular domain therefore, they are considered transmembrane proteins. in order to initiate a second messenger cascade, they typically display enzymatic activity though some may act strictly as channels.
