© 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. 5.1 The Nature of the Plasma Membrane
© 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. The Nature of the Plasma Membrane The plasma membrane is a thin, fluid entity that manages to be very flexible and yet is stable enough to stay together despite being continually remade due to the constant movement of materials in and out of it.
© 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. The Plasma Membrane In animal cells, the plasma membrane has four principal components: 1. A phospholipid bilayer. 2. Molecules of cholesterol interspersed within the bilayer.
© 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. The Plasma Membrane 3. Proteins that are embedded in or that lie on the bilayer. 4. Short carbohydrate chains on the cell surface, collectively called the glycocalyx, that function in cell adhesion and as binding sites on proteins.

Figure 5.1 The Plasma Membrane phospholipidscholesterol proteins glycocalyx cell exterior cell interior cytoskeleton peripheral protein integral protein Phospholipid bilayer: a double layer of phospholipid molecules whose hydrophilic “heads” face outward, and whose hydrophobic “tails” point inward, toward each other. Cholesterol molecules that act as a patching substance and that help the cell maintain an optimal level of fluidity. Proteins, which are integral, meaning bound to the hydrophobic interior of the membrane, or peripheral, meaning not bound in this way. Glycocalyx: sugar chains that attach to proteins and phospholipids, serving as protein binding sites and as cell lubrication and adhesion molecules.
© 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. The Phospholipid Bilayer Phospholipids are molecules composed of two fatty acid chains linked to a charged phosphate group.
© 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. The Phospholipid Bilayer The fatty acid chains are hydrophobic, meaning they avoid water, while the phosphate group is hydrophilic, meaning it readily bonds with water.

© 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. The Phospholipid Bilayer Such phospholipids arrange themselves into bilayers—two layers of phospholipids in which the fatty acid “tails” of each layer point inward (avoiding water), while the phosphate “heads” point outward (bonding with it).
© 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. The Phospholipid Bilayer Phospholipids take on this configuration in the plasma membrane because a watery environment lies on either side of the membrane.
© 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. The Phospholipid Bilayer In animal cells, the cholesterol molecules that are interspersed between phospholipid molecules in the plasma membrane perform two functions: They act as a patching material that helps keep some small molecules from moving through the membrane. They keep the membrane at an optimal level of fluidity.
© 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. The Phospholipid Bilayer Some plasma membrane proteins are integral, meaning they are bound to the hydrophobic interior of the phospholipid bilayer. Others are peripheral, meaning they lie on either side of the membrane but are not bound to its hydrophobic interior.
© 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. Membrane Protein Functions In animal cells, the cholesterol molecules that are interspersed between phospholipid molecules in the plasma membrane perform two functions: structural support cell identification, by serving as external recognition proteins that interact with immune system cells
© 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. Membrane Protein Functions communication, by serving as external receptors for signaling molecules transport, by providing channels for the movement of compounds into and out of the cell
© 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. Figure 5.3 The Plasma Membrane (a) Structural support (b) Recognition(c) Communication (d) Transport cell exterior cell interior Proteins can serve as channels through which materials can pass in and out of the cell. Receptor proteins, protruding out from the plasma membrane, can be the point of contact for signals sent to the cell via traveling molecules, such as hormones. Protein fragments held within recognition proteins can serve to identify the cell as “normal” or “infected” to immune system cells. Membrane proteins can provide structural support, often when attached to parts of the cell’s scaffolding or “cytoskeleton.”
© 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. The Plasma Membrane The plasma membrane today is described by a conceptualization called the fluid- mosaic model. It views the membrane as a fluid, phospholipid bilayer that has a mosaic of proteins either fixed within it or capable of moving laterally across it.
© 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. 5.2 Diffusion, Gradients, and Osmosis
© 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. Diffusion, Gradients, and Osmosis Diffusion is the movement of molecules or ions from a region of their higher concentration to a region of their lower concentration.
© 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. Diffusion, Gradients, and Osmosis A concentration gradient defines the difference between the highest and lowest concentrations of a solute within a given medium. Through diffusion, compounds naturally move from higher to lower concentrations, meaning down their concentration gradients.
© 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. Figure 5.4 Diffusion, Gradients, and Osmosis (a) Dye is dropped in. (b) Diffusion begins. (c) Dye is evenly distributed. water molecules dye molecules
© 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. Diffusion, Gradients, and Osmosis Energy must be expended to move compounds against their concentration gradients, meaning from a lower to a higher concentration.
© 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. Diffusion, Gradients, and Osmosis A semipermeable membrane is one that allows some compounds to pass through freely while blocking the passage of others.
© 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. Diffusion, Gradients, and Osmosis Osmosis is the net movement of water across a semipermeable membrane from an area of lower solute concentration to an area of higher solute concentration.
© 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. Diffusion, Gradients, and Osmosis Because the plasma membrane is a semipermeable membrane, osmosis operates in connection with it. Osmosis is a major force in living things; it is responsible for much of the movement of fluids into and out of cells.
© 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. Figure 5.5 (a) An aqueous solution divided by a semipermeable membrane has a solute —in this case, salt— poured into its right chamber. (b) As a result, though water continues to flow in both directions through the membrane, there is a net movement of water toward the side with the greater concentration of solutes in it. (c) Why does this occur? Water molecules that are bonded to the sodium (Na + ) and chloride (Cl – ) ions that make up salt are not free to pass through the membrane to the left chamber of the container. semipermeable membrane osmosis pure water water bound to salt ions salt solvent solute
© 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. Osmotic Imbalances Osmotic imbalances can cause cells either to dry out from losing too much water or, in the case of animal cells, to break from taking too much water in. Plant cells generally do not have this problem because their cell walls limit their uptake of water.
© 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. Solute Concentration Cells will gain or lose water relative to their surroundings in accordance with what the solute concentration is inside the cell as opposed to outside it.
© 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. Solute Concentration A cell will lose water to a surrounding solution that is hypertonic—a solution that has a greater concentration of solutes in it than does the cell’s cytoplasm. A cell will gain water when the surrounding solution is hypotonic to the cytoplasmic fluid.

© 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. Solute Concentration Water flow is balanced between the cell and its surroundings when the surrounding fluid and the cytoplasmic fluid are isotonic to each other—when they have the same concentration of solutes.

© 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. 5.3 Moving Smaller Substances In and Out
© 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. Moving Smaller Substances In and Out Some compounds are able to cross the plasma membrane strictly through diffusion; others require diffusion and special protein channels; still others require protein channels and the expenditure of cellular energy.
© 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. Passive transportActive transport simple diffusionfacilitated diffusion Materials move down their concentration gradient through the phospholipid bilayer. The passage of materials is aided both by a concentration gradient and by a transport protein. Molecules again move through a transport protein, but now energy must be expended to move them against their concentration gradient. ATP Figure 5.7
© 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. Transport Through the Plasma Membrane Active transport is any movement of molecules or ions across a cell membrane that requires the expenditure of energy. Passive transport is any movement of molecules or ions across a cell membrane that does not require the expenditure of energy.
© 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. Types of Passive Transport There are two forms of passive transport: simple diffusion and facilitated diffusion. For either form of transport to bring about a net movement of materials into or out of a cell, a concentration gradient must exist.
© 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. Types of Passive Transport A concentration gradient is all that is required for simple diffusion to operate. Facilitated diffusion, however, requires both a concentration gradient and a protein channel.
© 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. Facilitated Diffusion In facilitated diffusion, transport proteins function as channels for larger hydrophilic substances—substances that, because of their size and electrical charge, cannot diffuse through the hydrophobic portion of the plasma membrane.
© 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. Figure 5.8 Facilitated Diffusion cell exterior plasma membrane cell interior glucose 1. The transport protein has a binding site for glucose that is open to the outside of the cell. 2. Glucose binds to the binding site. 4. Glucose passes into the cell and the protein returns to its original shape. 3. This binding causes the protein to change shape, exposing glucose to the inside of the cell.
© 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. Active Transport Cells cannot rely solely on passive transport to move substances across the plasma membrane. A cell may need to maintain a greater concentration of a given substance on one side of its membrane. Yet, passive transport equalizes concentrations of substances on both sides of the plasma membrane.
© 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. Active Transport To deal with such needs, cells use active transport. Chemical pumps move compounds across the plasma membrane against their concentration gradients.
© 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. Active Transport One example of such transport is the pumping of glucose into cells that line the small intestines.
© 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. 5.4 Moving Larger Substances In and Out
© 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. Moving Larger Substances In and Out Larger materials are brought into the cell through endocytosis and moved out through exocytosis.
© 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. Exocytosis and Endocytosis Both mechanisms employ vesicles, the membrane-lined enclosures that alternately bud off from membranes or fuse with them.
© 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. Exocytosis In exocytosis, a transport vesicle moves from the interior of the cell to the plasma membrane and fuses with it, at which point the contents of the vesicle are released to the environment outside the cell.
© 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. Figure 5.10 Exocytosis (a) Exocytosis extracellular fluid protein transport vesicle cytosol (b) Micrograph of exocytosis plasma membrane
© 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. Endocytosis There are two principal forms of endocytosis: pinocytosis and phagocytosis.
© 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. Endocytosis Pinocytosis is the movement of moderate- sized molecules into a cell by means of the creation of transport vesicles produced through an infolding or “invagination” of a portion of the plasma membrane.
© 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. Endocytosis Phagocytosis is when certain cells use pseudopodia or “false feet” to surround and engulf whole cells, fragments of them, or other large organic materials.
© 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. (a) Pinocytosis receptors captured molecules coated pit vesicle In this form of pinocytosis, called clathrin-mediated endocytosis, cell-surface receptors bind to individual molecules of the substance to be taken into the cell and then move laterally across the plasma membrane to a pit, coated on its underside with the protein clathrin, that will become a vesicle that moves into the cell. In phagocytosis, food particles—or perhaps whole organisms—are taken in by means of “false feet” or pseudopodia that surround the material. Pseudopodia then fuse together, forming a vesicle that moves into the cell’s interior with its catch enclosed. (b) Phagocytosis bacterium (or food particles) pseudopodium vesicle Formation of a pinocytosis vesicle. A human immune system cell called a macrophage (colored blue) uses phagocytosis to ingest an invading yeast cell Figure 5.11
© 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. Endocytosis In pinocytosis, materials are brought into the cell inside vesicles that bud off from the plasma membrane.
