receptor protein located at the plasma membrane; binds to a substance that alters some metabolic aspect of the cell
fluid-mosaic model model for the plasma membrane based n the changing location and pattern of protein molecules in a fluid phospholipid bilayer.
glycolipids lipid in plasma membranes that bears a carbohydrate chain attached to a hydrophobic tail
glycoproteins protein in the plasma membrane that bears a carbohydrate chain
