Lecture 14 Notes
What are requirements for life?
1. Supply of replicators- self reproducing molecules
2. Replicator copying must be subject to error
3. Supply of free energy for metabolism/ growth/ reproduction/ movement
4. Partial isolation from external environment
Why are membranes so important?
Separate cell interior from external environment
Enclose cells and organelles inside cells
Responsible for selective permeability
Biological membranes are selectively permeable- some thing’s are
allowed into the cell and some arent
held by weak hydrophobic forces- actually really strong though because
they are in such large numbers
Head- polar- carries a charge- wants to interact with water- therefore
hydrophilic
Tail- non polar- uncharged- doesnt like water- hydrophobic
Amphipathic- carries both opposite characteristics
Lipids maintain phospholipid bilayer spontaneously
Lateral movement occurs at about 10 billion times per second
Two types of membrane proteins
Peripheral- on 1 side of the membrane only
Integral (transmembrane)

OneClass has been such a huge help in my studies at UofT especially since I am a transfer student. OneClass is the study buddy I never had before and definitely gives me the extra push to get from a B to an A!

Balancing social life With academics can be difficult, that is why I'm so glad that OneClass is out there where I can find the top notes for all of my classes. Now I can be the all-star student I want to be.

As a college student living on a college budget, I love how easy it is to earn gift cards just by submitting my notes.
