BioCoach Activity

Biomembranes II: Membrane Dynamics and Communication

Introduction

This BioCoach activity will help you review how regions of membrane pinch inward or bud outward to allow materials to move through cells; how membranes mediate the communication of signals, as in hormones binding to cell surfaces; and how specialized membrane regions bind different cells into tissues.

This module is designed to be a supplement to, but not a replacement for, your textbook and classroom notes. You can test your understanding of membrane dynamics and communication by using the Self-Quiz at the end of the module.
