• laminin
  • Ultrastructural analysis revealed that laminin treatment induced the formation of a linear electron-dense extracellular matrix ( lamina densa ) separated from plasma membrane by a narrow lucent zone ( lamina lucida ). (biologists.org)

  • Investigating the effect of temperature on cell membrane permeability To investigate the effect of temperature on cell membrane permeability, I am going to use beetroot due to its pigment properties. (markedbyteachers.com)
  • As the results show more beetroot pigment can leak out at higher temperatures, I can construe that cell membrane becomes more ruptured as temperature increases. (markedbyteachers.com)
  • Lipid flip-flop and its associated transient pore formation are key thermodynamic properties of living cell membranes. (mit.edu)
  • However, there is a lack of understanding of whether ionic imbalance that exists ubiquitously across cell membranes affects lipid flip-flop and its associated functions. (mit.edu)
  • The asymmetry of lipid flip-flop and pore nucleation may have substantial implications for protein translocation, signaling, enzymatic activities, vesicle fusion, and transportation of biomolecules on cell membranes. (mit.edu)
