Question: d although it is rare membrane phospholipids can diffuse from...

Question details

D. Although it is rare, membrane phospholipids can diffuse from one leaflet to the other (spontaneous flip-flop) a. Based on the composition of their polar head groups, which would you expect to have a greater rate of flip-flop: phosphatidylethanglamine, or phosphatidylinositol? b. You conduct experiments showing that phosphatidylcholine has a flip- flop rate higher than either of these phospholipids. How would you explain this, based on their chemical structures? он он Нас OH OH Inositol Choline Ethanolamine
